YEREVAN. – No issue concerning Nagorno-Karabakh can be resolved without the participation of Karabakh Armenians, National Archives of Armenia Deputy Director and historian Edgar Hovhannisyan stated during a press conference on Thursday, commenting on US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton’s and OSCE Chairperson-in-Office Eamon Gilmore’s recent visits to Armenia.
“They did not give clear definitions on those guilty of inciting provocations at the line of contact and a proper assessment on the aggression that occurred,” he said.
In Hovhannisyan’s words, such conduct does not contribute to settlement of the Karabakh conflict.
“It is necessary to pass from unclear and evasive statements to Azerbaijan-targeted criticism. The names of those who are guilty in the military provocations must be publicized, albeit there are no international mechanisms to punish them as of yet,” noted Hovhannisyan.
At the same time he added that, in actual fact, the international powers accept that no issue concerning Karabakh can be working without the participation of the Karabakh Armenians.
