France-Artsakh friendship circle welcomes the resolution supporting Artsakh independence
STEPANAKERT, OCTOBER 10, ARTSAKHPRESS: This is stated in the statement issued by the friendship circle.The adoption of the resolution is particularly important in the sense that it "clearly connects the legitimate recognition of the people and its democratic institutions with peace and stability in the region." The friendship circle highly appreciates Michigan Senate, particularly senator Knezek’s decisive contribution in promoting the international recognition of the Artsakh Republic. Chairman of the France-Artsakh friendship circle François Rochebloine highlighted the fact that the resolution touched upon the injustices and pressures that faced Artsakh since Stalin's time.In his speech, he stressed that this new recognition confirms the irreversibility of Artsakh's independence and paves the way for international recognition.
