YEREVAN, JANUARY 10, ARTSAKHPRESS. Armenia prioritizes the issue of ensuring the security and rights of the Armenians of Nagorno Karabakh and will support by all available means the decision of the people of Nagorno Karabakh on the resolution of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said at a press conference when asked to present Armenia’s official position regarding the status of Nagorno Karabakh.
“We consider the issue of ensuring the security and rights of the Armenians of Nagorno Karabakh to be a priority, and we attach importance for the people of Nagorno Karabakh to be the entity who will speak about all these topics. They must make decisions and we will support them by all available means. Today we ensure humanitarian, financial issues, we will support with whatever we can. This is our stance,” Pashinyan said.
According to PM Pashinyan, one of the issues that had significant impact on developments was that Armenia had sidelined representatives of Nagorno Karabakh from the negotiations process and made decisions instead of them. “No, we can’t decide instead of them. We must deal with issues of Armenia’s relations, and representatives of Nagorno Karabakh must deal with the issue of Nagorno Karabakh, and we must support them,” Pashinyan said.
