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 people of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic have not agreed and will not agree to live as part of Azerbaijan, and it is for the people to decide the fate of Artsakh, Armenian President and presidential candidate Serzh Sargsyan said during his meeting with the residents of Davidashen administrative district of Yerevan.
The President said that the goal of Armenia is to ensure peaceful settlement of the Karabakh conflict, and it is not interested in resumption of armed hostilities. "We need a combat-effective army to achieve peace. If Azerbaijan is sure of its prevalence for at least a minute, it will by all means resume aggression against the NKR. Our next goal is to inform our allies and the international community of the core of the Karabakh problem. Karabakh became part of Azerbaijan by Stalin's will, but the people have never agreed and will never agree to it", he said.
