Upon the request of Lragir.am, the head of the NKR public council of
foreign policy and security Masis Mayilyan commented on the National
Assembly statement on Ramil Safarov’s extradition.
He says the favorable atmosphere of protest in and outside Armenia
should be an opportunity for the Armenian authorities to take decisive
steps, including the stipulation of the agreement on the recognition of
Nagorno-Karabakh Republic and strategic interstate partnership which
includes mutual security elements. These steps could prevent military
developments and could strengthen regional security, he said, adding
that unfortunately the reaction of the Armenian parliament was weak
The recent developments showed that Azerbaijan’s policy of buying
international and national officials threatens the security of Artsakh
and Armenia, as well as the settlement of the Karabakh issue.
Under these conditions, Armenia could suspend its participation in the
Minsk Group-mediated process and the Armenian sides to the Karabakh
issue could demand reliable security guarantees from the OSCE Mink
Group to continue the talks. Only the international recognition of
Artsakh and its involvement in the international security system may
ensure the necessary guarantees, said Masis Mayilyan.
