YEREVAN. – The world must recognize the right of the Armenians of Karabakh to self-determination. The president of the National Assembly (NA) of Armenia, Ararat Mirzoyan, stated this at Tuesday’s sitting of the NA, commenting on the Azerbaijanis "repair works" at the Holy Savior Ghazanchetsots Armenian church in now Azerbaijani-occupied Shushi, Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), which however, are actually aimed at distorting the historical appearance of this ancient Armenian city.
According to the parliament speaker, this barbarism, the Azerbaijanis’ treatment of the captured Armenians, and the recent opening of a disgraceful park in Baku are a clear proof that Artsakh Armenians’ safe existence within Azerbaijan is impossible. "And, based on that, the world must recognize the right of Karabakh Armenians to self-determination," Mirzoyan stressed.
The NA president added that this is the official position of Yerevan, and there is no change in it.
