Pashinyan: Artsakh and Azerbaijan can never exist within the common  political territory

ArmInfo.Perception and approaches of the authorities of Armenia and Artsakh regarding the settlement of Artsakh isssue are identical. This was stated by Prime  Minister Nikol Pashinyan on February 22, during his speech in  Stepanakert at the third meeting of the Security Council.

In his speech, the Prime Minister emphasized that the Republic of  Artsakh is a full participant in the negotiation process, without  which it is impossible to resolve the Karabakh conflict.

''One of the cornerstones of cooperation between Artsakh and the  Republic of Armenia is security, since Artsakh and Armenia are a  common territory and a security environment, and here our agenda  cannot be divided and differentiated in any way. In this regard, we  naturally attach great importance to the combat effectiveness of the  Armed Forces of the Republic of Armenia and the Artsakh Republic and  the moral and psychological atmosphere that has developed in the  Armed Forces, which should reach a new high level. I believe this  issue can be resolved'', he said.

Pashinyan emphasized that the authorities' practical tasks include  equating the authority of military service with the authority of the  army itself. "Today, we will certainly discuss what steps should be  taken in this direction," he stressed. In addition, at a meeting of  the Security Council, according to the Prime Minister, issues of  aggravation of regional security will be discussed and decisions made  in this direction.

''I think that today, in the context of the geopolitical realities  prevailing in the region, we must state that we have a joint  responsibility not only in terms of security of the Republic of  Armenia and the Republic of Artsakh, but also from the point of view  of ensuring regional and global security. And I'm glad to state that  the approaches of the authorities of Armenia and Artsakh are  identical on this issue,> he said, noting that this issue is one of  the most important on the agenda.

Pashinyan drew attention to the fact that nationwide elections will  soon be held in Artsakh. <I believe that the elections held over the  entire period of the existence of Artsakh showed a significant  difference in the realities between the Republic of Artsakh and the  Republic of Azerbaijan in terms of the level of democracy. This once  again proves that Artsakh and Azerbaijan can never be together within  the framework of a common political territory, since even 10 years  ago, the level of democracy in Artsakh was incomparably higher than  in a neighboring country>, the Prime Minister said.
