/PanARMENIAN.Net/ “We are ready to continue dialogue with Azerbaijan
for the settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict and with Turkey on
establishing relations without any preconditions,” Armenian President
Robert Kocharian stated when addressing Black Sea Forum for Dialogue
and Partnership. “The people of Nagorno Karabakh have implemented
in practice the right for self-determination. It was done fully in
line with the requirements of international law. Results of the
referendum on independence were later defended in the war forced
on that people. These events developed in the timeframe of global
changes, related to the collapse of the Soviet Empire. That situation
is classical for cases of self-determination through secession,”
Robert Kocharian said.

“Now for fifteen years Nagorno Karabakh Republic continues to prove its
right for independence by own achievements in effective statecraft. A
whole generation grew up there, which watches itself as possessors
and defenders of that statehood. We believe that there is a need for
effective efforts for a full-scale integration of the Republic in
the international society,” the Armenian President remarked.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
