Within this context Bako Sahakyan considered important carrying out coordinated work between Diaspora organizations and concerned structures of Artsakh and Armenia towards international recognition of Artsakh, establishment of bilateral relations, making Artsakh more recognizable, introducing it as a safe and stably developing country, properly presenting the most attractive sites and projects for foreign investments, rapidly responding to the enemy’s provocative policy based on falsehood and lie.
