Armen Ashotyan: We must prove to the international community that the  Karabakh conflict is unique

ArmInfo."Unfortunately, the Karabakh conflict is not considered by the international community as a unique issue, we must prove that the Artsakh issue is unique and  unlike any other, and we need to take a special approach to it," the head of state said on November 10.  Parliamentary Commission on Foreign Affairs Armen Ashotyan.

According to him, of course, there are conflicts in the world, which,  perhaps, resemble the Karabakh, but when studying them it becomes  clear that all problems are different in their essence. Ashotyan also  stressed that the main issue for the Republic of Armenia is the  recognition of the independence of the NKR. "How can this be  achieved?

First, we need to understand the difference between international  publicity and international recognition." The best way would be for  all states to recognize the independence of Artsakh, but this moment  has not yet matured, so the best way to involve Artsakh in  international processes is to achieve its participation in  international programs, "Ashotyan said. He also stressed that it is  important to convey the voice of the Artsakh MPs to international  structures.
