The Sarsang Reservoir fate's discussion at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) Committee on Social Affairs, Health and Sustainable Development, and at the Azerbaijani party's initiative is in the interests of the Armenian side, a member of the parliament from the ruling RPA parliamentary faction, Naira Karapetyan, said at today's press-conference.
She also added that Azerbaijan has attempted to have the Sarsang Reservoir matter discussed within all international organizations for a long time, but it always received a negative response, until recently. "The discussion of this mater is very important for the Armenian party. Official Stepanakert has repeatedly offered to operate the Sarsang Reservoir in cooperation with the Azerbaijani party. Of the Azerbaijani party agrees to it, it will have to conduct negotiations with NKR. From the political point of view this is good for the settlement of the Karabakh conflict, as in that case the Azerbaijani party will indirectly recognize the NKR", - she said.
