Kiro Manoyan, Head of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation Bureau’s Hay Dat and Political Affairs Office presented a formula today, which will help restore diplomatic relations with Hungary.
“Since Hungary’s step endangered the negotiation process on the settlement of the Karabakh conflict, it’s next steps should be equivalent,” Kiro Manoyan told reporters today. “Hungary should recognized the right of the people of Nagorno Karabakh to self-determination and accept the fact of realization of that right.”
Referring to the statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs that “Armenia expects concrete steps from the Hungarian side,” he noted that “it’s necessary to specify what kind of concrete steps we are expecting.
According to him, the willingness of the Hungarian authorities to restore relations with Armenia stems from the concerns about the pressures from foreign countries and the negative attitude of the society.
The political scientist considers that the developments connected with Safarov’s release will bring about the necessity to change the negotiation format. He does not believe the Presidents of the two countries will meet in the near future.
“It’s no secret that Azerbaijan has always wanted to see Turkey as a mediator in the Karabakh talks, butTurkey is creating a new situation in the region with its current steps,” Kiro Manoyan said, meaning the Syrian events.
Kiro Manoyan is generally satisfied with the steps of the Armenian Government to help Syrian Armenians. “I should say that adequate steps are being taken,” he said.
