“It’s time for us – as friends of democracy – to recognize this country,” French MP Valerie Boyer stated at the National Assembly of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic.
A group of Members of the European Parliament paid a one-day visit to Artsakh accompanied by Armenian MP Artak Zakaryan.
Members of the EU-Armenia Friendship Group of the European Parliament visited Gandzasar and Shushi, held meetings at the Artsakh State University and the National Assembly.
Also, the delegation visited the Children’s Hospital of Stepanakert, where head of the delegation Dr Eleni Theocharous, a doctor by profession, performed operations during the cruel days of the Artsakh war.
“The war for the victory of your self-determination was also a struggle for maintaining the European Christian culture,” she said.
Speaking at the meeting with EU parliamentarians, Speaker of the National Assembly Ashot Ghulyan said “it’s high time of the international community to take steps towards de jure recognition of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic.”
“It’s our duty to recognize this country,” French MP Valerie Boyer said.
“I will continue to visit Karabakh until I see that this people, which raised its voice for self-determination years ago, has fulfilled its dream,” Dr Eleni Theocharous stated.
