The President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan said on Tuesday in the
Armenian capital Yerevan, it would not bring any benefit for Armenia
to recognize occupied Nagorno-Karabakh.

Sargsyan commented on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and the resolution
process at a press conference on Tuesday.

When reminded about the requests in the Armenian public opinion towards
“recognition of Nagorno-Karabakh’s independence,” Sargsyan stated that
“it would not bring any benefit for Armenians neither in Armenia nor
in Karabakh.”

Sargsyan noted that the recognition of Nagorno-Karabakh’s independence
would halt the resolution process led by the Minsk Group of the
Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) for over
20 years.

“This step could hit the co-chair countries in the Minsk group like
a slap in the face. If a war breaks out, we cannot fight against the
whole world. Such a decision would ruin our weight in the international
area. Our citizens would not probably benefit from it,” said Sargsyan.

Sargsyan added that recognition of Nagorno-Karabakh’s independence
is possible only if Azerbaijan starts a war.
