YEREVAN. – Nagorno-Karabakh is thriving when it comes to human rights.
Kristen Abajian, a member of the Human Rights Initiative at the University of California, Davis, USA, noted the above-said at a press conference on Wednesday in Yerevan, the capital city of Armenia.
Abajian stressed that their election observation team had seen faithfulness in the holding of parliamentary elections in the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR; Artsakh), and their monitoring at the election precincts in the City of Shushi had proved this faithfulness.
She added that their observation team also saw conveniences for persons with impaired vision and limited physical abilities.
Kristen Abajian said, however, that they wish to submit a few suggestions to the NKR Central Electoral Commission and the authorities, so as to improve those conveniences.
As per the American Armenian expert, it is very important that the people of Nagorno-Karabakh sense that these changes are being implemented.
