YEREVAN NOT WORRIED ABOUT UN NAGORNO-KARABAKH RESOLUTION
March 17 2008
Vote on the Azerbaijan-introduced resolution of UN General Assembly on
Nagorno-Karabakh has inspired Yerevan, REGNUM correspondent in Yerevan
quotes Viktor Sogomonyan, press secretary of Armenia’s president,
to state at a press conference on March 17.
According to Sogomonyan, the Armenian side has been inspired by the
fact that "all civilized countries either abstained from the vote,
or disapproved the resolution," realizing that it might aggravate
the situation. Commenting on the question whether the Armenian side
was going to halt negotiations with Azerbaijan, Sogomonyan observed
that such a step of Azerbaijan in UN raised a number of questions,
in particular, how serious is Baku about the negotiation process.
He said, however, that the issue is not so far on the table. Speaking
of the fact of the resolution’s being adopted, he stated that
it was quite predictable. "It is not the first instance when an
Azerbaijan-initiated legally non-binding document is passed. The
Armenian side is not worried about it," Sogomonyan concluded.
