Armenia is ready to recognize Karabakh as an "independent state"
The government of Armenia approved the draft law on the recognition of the independence of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic at the 5 May meeting.
The bill in the prescribed manner will be submitted to the National Assembly. The project was presented by Deputy Foreign Minister of Armenia Shavarsh Kocharyan, writes Galatv.am.
The government’s conclusion says that the adoption of the draft law “is connected with the results of discussions between Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh and is due to possible further processes, including external factors.”
Baku offered Yerevan to discuss the issue of de-occupation of Nagorno-Karabakh controlled by Armenia within the framework of the OSCE Minsk negotiating group. However, Serzh Sargsyan, the President of Armenia and the former leader of the People's Karabakh Party, refused.
Как писал earlier ForumDaily, in early April, the armed conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan became aggravated in Nagorno-Karabakh.
As a result of the fighting, which lasted about two days, dozens of people were killed on both sides, including civilians. Parties to the conflict laid down responsible for massive shelling at each other.
