/PanARMENIAN.Net/ UN Third Committee’s debates in the right of nations
to self-determination turned out hot. Representatives of Russia,
Georgia, India, Pakistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran and Syria had to
take the chair several times each to answer numerous questions.
The Azeri delegation again made an attempt to represent the principle
of territorial integrity as prevailing over the other principles.
Armenia’s representative, for his part, dwelled on the right of
nations to self-determination and Karabakh people’s choice, which
is in line with international norms. He emphasized that the current
situation in the South Caucasus is the result of ethnic cleansings
and mass killings in Karabakh perpetrated by Azerbaijani authorities,
