Armenian MPs called on colleagues from France to promote  international recognition of Artsakh

Armenian MPs called on colleagues from France to promote  international recognition of Artsakh

ArmInfo.Vice Speaker of the National Assembly of Armenia Lena Nazaryan at the meeting with the delegation of French parliamentarians expressed gratitude to the  latter for the support provided to the Armenian people in this  difficult moment, and for the fact that they dared to call things by  their proper names.

As reported by the press service of the RA Parliament, after  describing in detail the situation resulting from the military  aggression unleashed by Azerbaijan against the Republic of Artsakh,  Nazaryan stressed that the target of the attacks of the Azerbaijani  Armed Forces are also the civilian population, against whom  prohibited weapons are used. She also spoke about the atrocities of  the enemy and the inhuman treatment of Armenian prisoners of war.

"We are fighting not for territory, but for our existence, against  which Azerbaijan opposes, and its supporter Turkey, brought  mercenaries from Syria, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Libya to the  region. Today, clear steps are required by the international  community to realize the right of the people of Artsakh to life.  We  are ready for a compromise if the right of the Armenians of Artsakh  to self-determination is recognized through the recognition of the  Republic of Artsakh. Azerbaijan, not wanting to discuss this issue,  failed the negotiations, dragging us into the war. The international  community should not be content with simple appeals; they cannot stop  the atrocities committed by our adversary. The Artsakh Republic must  be recognized for the sake of saving the Armenians. We cannot allow a  repetition of 1915, "the vice speaker emphasized. In turn, the French  MP of Armenian descent Guillaume Kasparian noted that the members of  the delegation want to familiarize themselves with the situation in  Armenia and Artsakh in order to inform France and Europe about it.  Touching upon the issue of recognizing the independence of Artsakh,  Kasparyan noted that some MPs have already signed a draft statement  on the recognition of Artsakh. But, according to him, such a  discussion will not end in a few days, given the workload of the  parliament's agenda. Pointing to the need to end the war, the French  deputies inquired about what decisions are needed to get out of this  bloody slaughter and save the people of Armenia and Artsakh.

In their speeches, the deputies of the Armenian parliament noted the  need for a ceasefire, spoke about the facts of violation of the  humanitarian ceasefire and the continuation of hostilities by  Azerbaijan. It was noted that only after the cease-fire it will be  possible to resume negotiations, for which the Armenian side is  always ready. "It is impossible to negotiate when people are deprived  of the right to life," the deputies stressed. The Armenian  parliamentarians called on their French colleagues, as members of the  parliament of the OSCE Minsk Group co-chair country, to make efforts  to prevent the Azerbaijani-Turkish aggression, as well as to  recognize the right of the people of Artsakh to self-determination,  considering it uncontested.  Deputies from France considered the use  of drones by Azerbaijan against the people of Artsakh unacceptable,  and also asked if international recognition of Artsakh's independence  would lead to a worsening of the situation. The Armenian deputies  assured that the recognition of Artsakh will have exceptional  positive consequences. The Armenian side explained that the problem  of Artsakh is a question of the right to life, not a territorial  dispute, and today it is necessary to take measures to end the war  and the atrocities of the enemy. The question was raised about the  possibility of resolving the issue within the framework of the OSCE  Minsk Group. The NA MPs noted that this Azerbaijani-Turkish  aggression is also aimed at changing the format of the Minsk Group,  which is absolutely unacceptable for the Armenian side.  <The goal of  the terrorists is to intimidate us all. Today we are dealing with  terrorists, and today no one is afraid of terrorists here. And so we  will go to Artsakh, stay in Artsakh, we will live in Artsakh>, -  concluded the head of the Armenia-France friendship group Vladimir  Vardanyan.
