TSVETANA PASKALEVA: I WILL LIVE IN ARMENIA UNTIL WORLD RECOGNIZES NKR INDEPENDENCE
JULY 9, 2009
"I will live in Armenia until the world recognizes the Nagorno Karabakh
Republic independence," Bulgarian journalist Tsvetana Paskaleva
stated at the July 9 press conference. She reminded that visiting
Artsakh for the purpose of covering the Nagorno Karabakh war, she
settled in Armenia and has been living there for already 18 years. T.
Paskaleva told that late Catholicos Vazgen I invited her for a talk
during the war and said that the journalist had arrived on a "special
mission" and will never leave the Armenian land. According to the
journalist, these words of Catholicos in fact were fulfilled.
T. Paskaleva said that if the Nagorno Karabakh problem should be
solved to the detriment of the Artsakh people, it is better to keep
the current NKR status quo. According to the journalist’s affirmation,
the Armenian side could have solved the problem as far back as in
1994, immediately after signing the truce, when Armenia was strong
and Azerbaijan weak.
At present, according to T. Paskaleva, rearrangement of forces has
happened and Azerbaijan has gained new friends and supporters. Though
the propaganda of Azeris is based on falsehood, according to her,
it has always been well-organized. While the Armenian side thinks
that the world should spontaneously admit the Armenian people’s being
right. T. Paskaleva emphasized that the Armenians should constantly
explain to the international community who is right and who is wrong.
