From the viewpoint of the protection of Artsakh people's rights, there was no visible interest in the meeting with OSCE Chairman-in-Office Zbigniew Rau, Artsakh Ombudsman Gegham Stepanyan said on the air of the NEWS.am Power Factor.
"During the meeting, my main task was to present the humanitarian situation in Artsakh and the consequences of Azerbaijan's criminal actions, and to make it clear that human rights cannot be ignored. In my opinion, from the meeting, it is very difficult to bring the defense of rights in the world. It seems acceptable to everyone that there are rights to be protected, but in the end it is political interests that decide everything. And I did not see any interest in terms of the real protection of Artsakh people's rights," Stepanyan said.
He noted that during the meeting it was said that the status of Artsakh must be solved by both sides in the course of negotiations.
