Parliamentary opposition suggests Armenian recognition of Karabakh
YEREVAN Oct 15
The Heritage parliamentary group has submitted a draft law on the
Armenian recognition of independent Karabakh to the parliament
speaker, parliamentary group leader Stepan Safarian told a press
"The bill will be presented to the parliament soon, and we hope our
colleagues will support it," he said.
Even if the bill is not approved, it will be added to the parliament
agenda as ‘the last weapon’, he said.
Another deputy, press secretary of the ruling Republican Party Eduard
Sharmazanov said that the bill would hardly be approved.
"The recognition of independent Karabakh cannot be a goal in itself
for Armenia. We accept the OSCE Minsk Group format, and think that the
Group must resolve that problem," he said.
