/PanARMENIAN.Net/ A new referendum in Nagorno Karabakh proposed at
the Rambouillet meeting of the Armenian and Azeri Presidents is a
trap, Chair of External Relations Commission of the National Assembly
of Armenia in 1995-1999 Hovhannes Igityan stated in a conversation
with a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter. In his words, the returns of the
referendum on NKR’s independence in 1991 are in fact canceled if it is
the case. “The move can be considered as a concession by Azerbaijan,
however it is not so. The NKR should be the one to set conditions
of holding (or not holding) a referendum. A legal formula should be
“invented” for displaced persons and refugees – only the NKR Ministry
of Internal Affairs can deal with that,” Igityan remarked. At that
he added that the legal framework for recognition of Nagorno Karabakh
independence will be weakened.
