NAGORNO KARABAGH HAS NO PLANS TO ISSUE ITS OWN CURRENCY
YEREVAN, JULY 13, ARMENPRESS: Press reports that Nagorno Karabagh
is going to introduce its own currency is a regular provocation,
plotted by Azerbaijan, David Mikaelian, the head of Nagorno Karabagh
government press service said commenting on the information
disseminated by a Baku-based daily Ekho.
He said Nagorno Karabagh makes a single economic space with
Armenia and has the same currency as Armenia and therefore has no
