Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan proposes the “secession for salvation” formula for the settlement of the Karabakh conflict.

“The principle of “secession for salvation,” which is the modern manifestation of the principle of self-determination of peoples, entitles certain groups, peoples, to secede from any state when there is a risk of discrimination, widespread human rights violations or genocide, and excludes joining a state if the unification can lead to the same consequences as above,” Pashinyan said in a Facebook post.

“In particular, this should be the basis of our concept for the settlement of the Karabakh conflict, and the involvement of mercenary terrorists in the current war, the terrorist practices of Turkey and Azerbaijan, provide a real opportunity to achieve such an international understanding,” he said.

“We must focus the potential of all Armenians on the solution of this problem,” PM Pashinyan stated.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
