In contrast to the Azerbaijani khanate, Nagorno-Karabakh is building a democratic state – Eduard Sharmazanov
STEPANAKERT, SEPTEMBER 6, ARTSAKHPRESS: The sides highlighted establishments of strong bilateral contacts and a need to fully use the available potential to achieve tangible results.
Mr Sharmazanov informed Mr Avruj of the current situation in the South Caucasus and stressed Armenia is a champion of regional peace and stability.
Turkey not only continues its policy of denying the Armenian Genocide, but has also for two decades been blockading Armenian in defiance of international law.
“It is only by means of our joint struggle against Turkey’s policy of denial that can prevent new genocides. International recognition of the Armenian Genocide is nothing but a struggle for protection of panhuman values,” Mr Sharmazanov said.
Speaking of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Mr Sharmazanor pointed out that independent Artsakh [Nagorno-Karabakh] is an accomplished fact. In contrast to the Azerbaijani khanate, Nagorno-Karabakh is building a democratic state. It is Turkey and Azerbaijan that are major threats to regional security.
Mr Sharmazanov also spoke Azerbaijan’s anti-Armenian policy, with numerous manifestations of xenophobia.
He also condemned Azerbaijan-committed cultural genocide, with the destruction of the Juga cemetery in Nakhichevan being glaring evidence thereof.
