There cannot be any negotiation without Artsakh – former PM
YEREVAN, DECEMBER 11, ARMENPRESS. Former prime minister of Artsakh, president of the Free Fatherland party Arayik Harutyunyan doesn’t consider the issue of the independence of Artsakh a topic for negotiations.
He told reporters that this issue is a precondition.
“There is no negotiation process and has not been. Meetings were held, but they cannot be called as negotiations if the major side – Artsakh, is not participating in them. There cannot be any negotiations without Artsakh. The independence of Artsakh cannot be a negotiation topic, this is a precondition. The future depends on accepting this precondition by Azerbaijan. A formula, that is unacceptable first of all for the people of Artsakh, cannot be a topic for discussion”, he added.
