Karabakh welcomes Massachusetts resolution

13:09, 14.08.2012 Region: World News, Karabakh Theme: Politics, Analytics

STEPANAKERT.- Massachusetts lawmakers’ resolution supporting Nagorno-Karabakh’s  independence is the second measure adopted in U.S. at the level of state (the first was Rhode Island), said Karabakh official.

Vahram Atanesyan, head of standing committee on foreign affairs at the Karabakh parliament, welcomed the resolution calling it an action “in support of freedom”.

Atanesyan stressed realistic decisions proposed by the states show the Karabakh side may expect that trend of recognizing de facto independence of Nagorno-Karabakh may become a priority for the government.

“Recognition of Karabakh’s independence would ease tension and would promote stability in the South Caucasus which is in the interests of the U.S.,” he added.
