May 18 Yerevan wants the Karabakh conflict to be resolved on the basis of mutual compromises and change of the status quo, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan said. "Changes in the status quo are acceptable, but only provided that the matter is resolved in a comprehensive way. We have repeatedly spoken in favor of a compromise solution to the problem, the essence of which is in the recognition of the Nagorno-Karabakh people's right to self-determination and its enforcement," Sargsyan said in his address on the occasion of the first session of the Armenian parliament elected on April 2. Armenia will not support a settlement of the problem through unilateral concessions, he said. "We do not want the status quo to stay and we do not want to place the burden of settling the issue on the next generation. The efforts we are making jointly with the mediators to settle this conflict are aimed at that," Sargsyan said.
