STEPANAKERT. – Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan spoke about the new content of the Karabakh settlement.
In his speech during the joint meeting of Armenian and Artsakh national security councils, Pashinyan said this format is not a tradition, but an absolute necessity so that the authorities of Armenia and Artsakh could be “on the same scale.”
Interaction between Armenia and Artsakh is an important component of the security of Armenian people, he added.
It has become possible to state that the authorities of Artsakh and Armenia have identical positions on the settlement.
This does not mean that Armenia and Artsakh have identical views on all issues, but there is identical perception in terms of strategy.
“The most important of them I consider the statement that the Republic of Artsakh is a full-fledged participant in the negotiation process and it is impossible to resolve the Karabakh issue without Karabakh’s participation in talks. In this regard, I consider it very important that in the course of our joint work, a new negotiation content is formed. I believe that this content is, first of all, representing the interests of Armenia and Artsakh more comprehensively, and secondly, it is constructive in terms of creating opportunities for the settlement,” said Nikol Pashinyan.
He also noted importance of a discussion within the framework of the Munich Security Conference where this content was clearly formulated and was called “the Munich principles”.
