ArmInfo. The population of Nagorno-Karabakh has never consisted of "two communities", the Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh have always been an absolute majority. On December 13 during a briefing in Yerevan, official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Armenia Anna Naghdalyan announced, answering the question about the recent increase in various statements about the participation of the so-called Azerbaijani community of Karabakh in the negotiations.
The spokeswoman for the Armenian Foreign Ministry recalled that both the final part of the Budapest Summit document and the ceasefire agreement referred to three parties. At the same time, she stated that the composition of the delegations was already decided by the parties themselves. "Nagorno-Karabakh never consisted of two communities. Even in Soviet times it was Armenian autonomy, despite the attempts of the Azerbaijani authorities to change the demographic picture in favor of Azerbaijan, the Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh have always been an absolute majority. Therefore, talking about communities is artificial. The goal is to try to influence on the participation of Nagorno-Karabakh in the negotiations, "said Anna Naghdalyan.
Commenting on the accusations from Baku of the inconsistency of the position, the spokeswoman for the Foreign Ministry noted that such accusations were dictated by an attempt to shift the focus and the influence of internal processes in Azerbaijan on the position of the authorities of this country
