Stepan Demirchyan: "It is wrong that Nagorno Karabakh is left beyond the negotiation process"

24 December 2008 [17:54] - TODAY.AZ
"It is not correct that Karabakh is left beyond the negotiation process and next year the diplomatic efforts of powers must aim to involve Karabakh into the negotiation process as its full party, said head of the Popular Party of Armenia Stepan Demirchyan, drawing conclusions of the external policy of Armenia in the passing year.

The three principles, presented by Armenia in the resolution of the Karabakh conflict, according to Demirchyan, are admissible, yet the problem is whether the powers will support these principles.

"Unilateral and inadmissible concessions will not be recognized by our public either in Armenia or Karabakh", said he.

As for the Armenian-Turkish relations, Demirchyan noted that the football diplomacy did not give special results, as Turkey continues to bind the improvement of bilateral relations with the resolution of the Karabakh problem. According to Demirchyan, the idea of creation of the commission of historians, as the "Armenian genocide" is a fact and it must be recognized.

"The football diplomacy did not attain a breakthrough in the bilateral relations, though the initiative of the Turkish intellectuals, via which they apologize to Armenians for "genocide" is welcomed", said Demirchyan.
