YEREVAN. – Uruguay FM Luis Almagro on Friday made a surprising statement on the Karabakh issue.

Uruguay FM stated also that Karabakh is the historical part of Armenia. Uruguay currently studies the case to recognize the state officially.
Uruguay was also the first state in the world to recognize the Armenian Genocide implemented by the Turks in 1915.
