Armenia's FM issues statement on Resolution of California Senate recognizing Karabakh's independence
YEREVAN, AUGUST 28, ARMENPRESS. The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Armenia Edward Nalbandian has issued a statement on the Resolution of California Senate recognizing the Independence of Artsakh. The Press, Information, and Public Relations Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Armenia informed “Armenpress” that the statement runs as follows:
“We welcome the resolution of California Senate on recognition of Independence of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic.
The more Azerbaijan continues to undermine the efforts of Armenia and the international community aimed at the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the more new decisions and resolutions can be expected paving way towards the international recognition of the Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh.”
Previously it was reported that the California State Senate approved a measure recognizing the independence and self-determination of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.
Wednesday’s vote on AJR32 also called for U.S. recognition of the Republic of Nagorno Karabakh, marking a major milestone in the growing American movement supporting the national and democratic aspirations of the citizens of this independent and historically Armenian country.
The historic vote specifically voiced encouragement for Artsakh’s continuing efforts to develop as a free and independent nation, and formally called upon the President and Congress of the United States to support the self-determination and democratic independence of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.
