“Azerbaijan has begun the war with the political and military support of Turkey. They have taken to the battlefield the mercenaries from Syria, Libya, Afghanistan and Pakistan perhaps for not having inner problems with the victims in their countries,” the NA Deputy Speaker said.
Lena Nazaryan has underscored that the NK issue is not a territorial problem for us, but an issue of human rights. According to her, Artsakh problem has emerged because of incapability of Azerbaijan to ensure the minimum rights of the Armenians residing in Nagorno Karabakh Autonomous Region. The NA Deputy Speaker has expressed conviction that during 30 years it has become clear that the Armenians and Azerbaijanis cannot live together under the leadership of Azerbaijan. “That is a direct threat to the Armenians’ life and security. We have said that we are ready for compromises, we are ready to solve the issue through negotiations. We have said that until now,” Lena Nazaryan documented.
As one of the ways of the problem solution, the NA Vice President indicated the international recognition of the right to the Armenians’ self-determination in the independent republic. To her conviction, the Armenians cannot live under the leadership of Azerbaijan, it will be a new genocide, the repetition of our history. Azerbaijan is against compromises, peace and negotiations. In this context Lena Nazaryan highlighted the role of the international community.
“The fact that Azerbaijan ignores the agreements, discredits Russia, France and the U.S., shall not remain unnoticed. People see that democratic superpowers are not able to influence the countries, which function with terrorist methods. If the world changes, this war shows that it becomes worse, more dangerous and more unpredictable. If the super powers cannot defend the small democracy, it undermines the people’s faith towards democracy and human rights. And in its turn will result in new wars, genocide and human sufferings. People will have good life irrespective of their nationality and place of living,” the NA Deputy Speaker said.
