Congratulatory address of the President of the Republic of Tajikistan, Leader of the Nation Emomali Rahmon on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the National Unity Day
In the history of every people and nation, events are recorded that, as the fruit of the mind and wisdom of these people, are of great and tremendous importance for the strength of the state and serve future generations as a torch illuminating the path.
The achievement of peace and stability and the establishment of national unity for the Tajik people are such historical events, and today the 25th anniversary of National Unity Day is widely celebrated in our beloved country.
On this occasion, I sincerely and warmly congratulate all of you, all dear Tajikistan and foreign compatriots.
In the early nineties of the last century, in the aftermath of the intrigues of the traitors of the Tajik people and the enemies of the Tajik state, the people of independent Tajikistan were plunged into the maelstrom of an imposed civil war, as a result of which all spheres of society and the state faced a tragic crisis.
The biggest danger that arose in those difficult times was the threat of the collapse of the Tajik nation and the disappearance of the young Tajik state from the political map of the world.
Such a difficult and dangerous situation forced the faithful, patriotic and vigilant sons and daughters of the nation to take serious steps to prevent this dangerous process and, above all, to convene a session of the Supreme Council - the only competent body of that time.
