The participation of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic in talks is crucial for resolving the regional conflict, Armenia’s top diplomat told Sputnik.
The resolution of the crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh is impossible without the direct participation of the region in negotiations, Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian told Sputnik.
“The resolution of the conflict is impossible without the participation of Nagorno-Karabakh. This is clearly understood and this is what the mediators speak of. The Azerbaijani side simply pretends that it does not understand, hiding its head in the sand, but all working documents discussed in recent years envisage direct participation of the Karabakh side in the elaboration of the agreement on comprehensive settlement of the conflict,” Nalbandian said.
