RA PARLIAMENT SPEAKER: IRRESPECTIVE OF DEVELOPMENTS AROUND
KOSOVO NAGORNO-KARABAKH TO BE INDEPENDENT REPUBLIC

YEREVAN, 19.02.08. DE FACTO. Nagorno-Karabakh issue is
unprecedented and can serve as an additional factor for Europe, RA
Parliament Speaker Tigran Torosian stated noting he could prove it
even not as Armenia’s citizen and Parliament’s Chair, IA REGNUM
reports.

In his words, "irrespective of what will subsequently take pace
in Kosovo, I am more than sure that Nagorno-Karabakh will be a free
Republic", he noted.

On February 17, 2008 the Serbian region of Kosovo declared its
independence under the aegis of the U. S. and the EU, however,
against the will of the U. N. Russia considers Kosovo’s independence
to be an inevitable precedent destroying the system of international
law, which, nevertheless, should be taken into consideration while
settling the issues concerning recognition of the unrecognized states
on the territory of the former USSR. The U. S. has already recognized
Kosovo’s independence, as a token of protest Serbia has recalled its
Ambassador from Washington. The U. K., Germany, Italy and France have
also announced their recognition of Kosovo’s
independence.
