  • The answer of Deputy Foreign Minister Shavarsh Kocharyan to the question of News.am - Interviews, articles and comments - Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Armenia
    this clear warning presenting a draft of another report which distorts the issues related to the settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict this time at the PACE Committee for Social Affairs is openly aimed at failing the efforts undertaken by the Co Chairs in the Nagorno Karabakh issue The draft of the report is only a grist for the mill of Azerbaijan s propaganda machine and is in line with the logistics of Baku s policy of undermining the negotiation process unceasing efforts aimed at escalating the situation along the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan and on the Line of Contact with Nagorno Karabakh shifting the discussions on the issue into other formats and constantly voicing criticism addressed at the Co Chairs Worrisome is the fact that some PACE parliamentarians intentionally or unintentionally are becoming tools of the Azerbaijani propaganda and by their vote distorting the reality they first of all are discrediting themselves and trying to shadow the PACE authority It is noteworthy that the rapporteur who has already visited Azerbaijan twice even did not consider to visit Nagorno Karabakh where she would have an opportunity to get acquainted with the situation of the main subject of her report the Sarsang Reservoir It is obvious that the rapporteur persued other goals Otherwise she would not ignore the fact that on November 18 the Nagorno Karabakh authorities answered positively to the written suggestion to arrange her visit received two days before Otherwise the letters of the Head of the Armenian delegation to PACE on the readiness to receive the rapporteur in Armenia will not be left without notice As a result the rapporteur presented a report on the reservoir that she has not even seen instead she filled the report with falsified arguments Moreover the hustle that accompanies the presentation

  • Edward Nalbandian: Nothing related to Nagorno-Karabakh can be settled without the consent of its people - Interviews, articles and comments - Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Armenia
    financed by Baku And this may be the very reason why R Walter rushed to present the fabricated rapport two days before the completion of his mission in the capacity of the PACE member As to the motives of his interest I will leave that to your judgment I would also like to recall the recent statement of the OSCE Minsk Group Co Chairs on this issue which stresses that the attempts to change the format or create parallel mechanisms can disrupt the negotiation process and impede progress towards a settlement The PACE members should take this warning seriously The same opinion was expressed by the Russian Foreign Minister during his recent visit to Yerevan who said that the Co Chairs strongly oppose attempts to shift this issue to other international platforms not dealing with the conflict resolution instead of a continuous practical and patient dialogue Question Minister Nalbandian after the notorious report of R Walter another report has been drafted within the same institution in PACE It concerns the Sarsang Reservoir The mere title of the report suggests that it will have an anti Armenian inclination It is entitled The bordering regions of Azerbaijani are intentionally deprived of Water How would you comment that Edward Nalbandian Back in 2013 the delegation of Azerbaijan to PACE presented a draft resolution complaining that Azerbaijanis are being deprived of the opportunity to use the Sarsang Reservoir At that time the Chairman of PACE rejected to proceed with that resolution Afterwards for whatever reasons the PACE decided to appoint a rapporteur to examine the issue Indeed not a single document on Nagorno Karabakh can be considered as unbiased and fair if the rapporteur has not visited the site to get acquainted with the situation on the ground A question rises as to how the rapporteur can form an opinion on a reservoir which she has not even seen The authorities of Nagorno Karabakh have constantly expressed their readiness to jointly use the waters of Sarsang Reservoir with Azerbaijan During his visit to Artsakh the PACE rapporteur could also have an opportunity to discuss with the authorities of Nagorno Karabakh the technical details of implementation of the above mentioned proposal In this regard it is noteworthy that the rapporteur has already visited Azerbaijan twice Meanwhile the authorities of Nagorno Karabakh only three four days ago received a letter from the PACE Secretariat with the proposal to receive the rapporteur As for Armenia the Head of the Armenian delegation to PACE in her letter to the PACE Secretariat dated August 3 has already expressed her readiness to receive the PACE rapporteur in Armenia This resolution should be submitted to the PACE Committee on Social Affairs Therefore it has been decided from the outset that the report should not be of a political but of a technical nature The Armenian side repeatedly urged the rapporteur who is a member of parliament of Bosnia and Herzegovina to remain faithful to this logic and not to politicize the

  • Nagorno-Karabakh issue - Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Armenia
    decision of the previous day was reviewed and the forced decision of incorporating Nagorno Karabakh to Azerbaijan and forming on its territory an autonomous oblast was made not even keeping procedure This decision is an unprecedented legal act in the history of international law when the party organ of a third country RK b P without any legal basis or authority determines the status of Nagorno Karabakh In December 1922 Azerbaijani and Armenian SSR were included in the formation processes of the USSR and only on one part of the territory of Karabakh on July 7 1923 by decision of the Central Executive Revolutionary Committee of Azerbaijan SSR the Nagorno Karabakh Autonomous Oblast was formed within Azerbaijan SSR by which in fact the Karabakh conflict was not resolved but temporarily frozen Moreover everything was done so that Nagorno Karabakh Autonomous Oblast had no common border with Armenia But during the entire Soviet period the Armenians of Nagorno Karabakh never put up with this decision and for decades struggled for reunification with the motherland During the entire period of being of Nagorno Karabakh Autonomous Oblast within Azerbaijan SSR the leadership of this republic had been regularly and consistently violating the rights and interests of the Armenian population Discriminatory policies by Azerbaijan against Nagorno Karabakh was reflected in attempts of artificially suspending the social economic development of the region turning it into a raw materials appendage actively intervening in the demographic process aimed at ethnic cleansing destructing and misappropriating Armenian monuments and cultural values Discrimination from Azerbaijan towards Nagorno Karabakh had its impact on the population of Karabakh and became the main reason of latter s migration As a result the correlation of the Karabakh population changed if in 1923 Armenians amounted to 94 4 percent of the population of Nagorno Karabakh according to 1989 statistics the number of Armenians had reduced to 76 9 percent The policy of ethnic cleansings had more success on another Armenian territory in Nakhichevan The people of NKAO and authorities of Armenian SSR had sent lots of applications to the Soviet central authorities asking about the reconsideration of the decision on incorporating Nagorno Karabakh to Azerbaijan which were ignored or rejected causing persecutions against the initiators Among these applications are the application of the Government and the Communist Party Central Committee of Armenian SSR from 1945 to the Government of the USSR and the All Union Communist Party Central Committee more than 2 5 thousand in 1963 and more than 45 thousand signed letters in 1965 from the NKAO population addressed to Soviet leadership offers of NKAO working groups within the USSR wide discussions on a new constitution in 1977 Current stage of Nagorno Karabakh conflict The current phase of Nagorno Karabakh conflict began in 1988 when in response to the self determination claims of NK population the Azeri authorities organized massacres and ethnic cleansing of the Armenian population on the entire territory of Azerbaijan particularly in Sumgait Baku and Kirovabad On December 10 1991 NK
