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 20th year of Armenian-Italian diplomatic relations has been marked in the Italian Senate.
According to the press service of Armenia's Foreign Ministry, Ambassador of Armenia to Italy Ruben Karapetyan spoke about the Nagorno-Karabakh peace process.
He said that stability in the region depends not only on oil and gas interests. "Nobody can force a citizen of Nagorno-Karabakh to renounce his or her right to live in an independent country, nor can anybody force a people that has shed blood for its freedom to live in a country that constitutes a threat to its physical existence," Karapetyan said.
As regards Armenian-Italian relations, he said that the countries have proved that their mutual confidence and sympathy can be a good basis for effective political and economic cooperation.
