One gets the impression that the Armenian authorities’ approaches are targeted at a foreign state’s interests since the previous statements on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict don’t correspond to the current actions. This is what first Ombudswoman of Armenia, human rights activist Larisa Alaverdyan told reporters today.
She recalled that first President of Armenia Levon Ter-Petrosyan was the only one who would talk about the possibility of resolving the conflict through territorial concessions, while the other two presidents aspired to maintain the status-quo de facto.
According to her, the so-called Munich principles that Nikol Pashinyan introduced and were accepted outside the framework of the OSCE Minsk Group and without Karabakh’s participation, are addressed to the Armenian audience, but can’t be acceptable.
Alaverdyan believes Karabakh’s sovereignty extends to the territories that have never belonged to Azerbaijan, and in this regard, principle that for Karabakh, territories only mean security, is unacceptable. Larisa Alaverdyan also urged to stop stating that the resolution has to be acceptable for Baku as well since Aliyev clearly stated that his acceptable solution can only be Karabakh’s unification with Azerbaijan.
She expressed certainty that it is necessary to organize a discussion with all Armenians of the world and specify the overall stance on the Nagorno-Karabakh.
