Stepanakert, 11 May: “The recognition of Nagornyy Karabakh’s
independence is an optimal model of the settlement of the conflict,”
deputy of the secretary general of the CIS Interparliamentary Assembly,
Feliks Khushchyan announced to journalists.
He expressed regret that after the signing of the Bishkek agreement
10 years ago the Interparliamentary Assembly was left within the
framework of the settlement process.
In connection with the new Azerbaijani leadership’s proposal on
starting the negotiations from the scratch, in particular, he stressed
that “they will be forced to reckon with the realities of modern life”.
Regarding the possibilities of including Karabakh parliamentarians
in the process of settlement of the conflict, Feliks Khushchyan noted
that he is not supportive of that, for the parliamentarians are always
pushing the process forward, but there are cases when this potential
must be used. “In a word, any option to reach the problem’s solution
must be taken into consideration,” deputy of the secretary general
of the CIS Interparliamentary Assembly concluded.
