“The Armenian government’s approval of the opinion on the draft law on recognition of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic will have a positive influence on the maintenance of peace in the region and will help resume talks,” Spokesman for the NKR President David Babayan told Interfax.
“We attach importance to the approval of the bill in the context of peace in the region. Armenia thus made it clear to the world, and first of all Azerbaijan, that in case the military actions resume, the independence of NKR will be recognized,” he said.
According to Babayan, this is an important step for maintaining peace and “break the deadlock” in the negotiation process.
“The negotiations will continue and the bill will contribute to the revitalization of talks,” he added.
David Babayan clarified that “speaking about a final recognition is still untimely, but the process has started.”
