Political expert: Reports that the Azeri Parliament might adopt a law "On Occupied Territories of Azerbaijan" were just an attempt to see the reaction of the Azeri society, Armenia and the world community
Marat Terterov: Armenia’s long term security will be better served by strengthening economic security, rather than defining national security on the basis of the Tsarist Russian catch-cry “armiya i flot”
The recognition of Karabakh's independence by the Massachusetts House of Representatives will be followed by similar decisions of other states, Galust Sahakyan, Head of the ruling Republican Party of Armenia Faction, told ArmInfo.
He said that the Armenian diplomacy's efforts are aimed at making the international community recognize the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, and such decisions of the U.S. states certainly make their essential contribution to the recognition process. "The more states, cities and countries recognize the NKR, the better. Everyone should know the truth, and the truth is that the people of Nagorno-Karabakh have an undisputable right to build an independent, sovereign and strong state", Sahakyan said.
To recall, on August 6 the House of Representatives of the State of Massachussetts, USA, adopted a resolution on recognition of Karabakh's independence. The document calls on the U.S. President Barack Obama and the Congress to support the sovereignty and independence of the NKR.
