On 2 September, at the briefing with reporters in Stepanakert, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Armenia Zohrab Mnatsakanyan and Masis Mayilian, Foreign Minister of Artsakh, touched upon the signing of a military-political alliance between Armenia and Artsakh.
Artsakh and Armenia have sufficient capacity to advance peace agenda: Zohrab Mnatsakanyan
STEPANAKERT, SEPTEMBER 2, ARTSAKHPRESS: “The matter of the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is first of all a human matter, a matter of existential physical safety for our compatriots,” Zohrab Mnatsakanyan said. “This is a top priority matter for all of us, a national matter, and the matter of status stemming from it; these two together form our important priorities. In this context, we carry out policy within the framework of the pacific settlement process.
“Peace has no alternative, and we insist on this point—based on the self-confidence that Artsakh and Armenia have sufficient capacity to advance the peace agend.”
Artsakh Foreign Minister Masis Mayilian, in his turn, said that the matter of signing a military and political alliance is under discussion.
“I believe as a result of a positive course, we can get a situation when, having such a document, we will underscore the subjectivity of the Artsakh Republic,” he said, “which will have a positive impact on Armenia to some extent, in terms of avoiding certain pressures.”
Masis Mayilian noted that this decision shall be made and implemented as a result of joint work.
