Kiro Manoyan reminds Robert Kocharyan that Madrid Principles were  introduced when he was still president of Armenia 

ArmInfo.Head of ARFD Bureau's Hay Dat and Political Affairs Office Kiro Manoyan has called unfair the second president Robert Kocharyan's accusations against the ruling Republican Party of Armenia over the Madrid Principles.  

"The Madrid Principle were introduced in November 2007 when Robert  Kocharyan was still president and Vartan Oskanian was the foreign  minister. Consequently, it is strange that these people now blame the  incumbent authorities for the current situation. It is unfair,"  Manoyan said.

In his exclusive interview to RFE/RL Armenian Service (Azatutyun.am),  Armenia's second President Robert Kocharyan said: "It is evident that  Madrid principles in their original state don't comply with the new  reality anymore and need to be reviewed. The first revision should  concern consolidation of security guarantees, clarification of  referendum terms with return of territories attached to it. For  instance, this is what could be the integral part of an agreement:  restoration of military balance, strict and controlled obligations  for the parties and the international community to maintain that  balance for at least 25 years," Kocharyan said.  At the same time,  the second president of Armenia is sure that the independence of NKR  and a common border with Armenia cannot be a subject for bargaining.
