In New Hampshire today, President Donald Trump hinted that the United States may recognize the independence of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh). Lilit Makunts, the head of the majority My Step faction of the National Assembly (NA) of Armenia, on Sunday night wrote about this on Facebook.
"Below we present the verbal quote from Trump's speech today.
So now we have Armenia. Look at the Armenian; they are incredible people, they’re fighting like hell. And you know what? We’re gonna get something done. But you, the Armenians have had a tough go. I was in Ohio yesterday; in Ohio we had a tremendous group of Armenians with the flags and the spirit. And the problems that they have, the deaths, the fighting [he means in Nagorno-Karabakh] and everything else, we’ll get that straightened out. I call that an easy one. Go back and tell your people. If you know what you are doing, it’s easy. We’re working on that. We did it with Kosovo in Serbia. Do you believe?” Makunts wrote.
To note, NA vice speaker Alen Simonyan and a number of other My Step MPs also made similar posts on Facebook.
