Masis Mayilyan: In Artsakh`s case, "integration" means voluntary  surrender

ArmInfo.Ambassador-at-Large of the President of the Republic of Artsakh, former NKR Minister of Foreign Affairs Masis Mayilyan touched upon the illegal blockade of  the internationally recognized Lachin (Kashatagh) corridor, which has  been going on for 100 days, noting that the use of terms plays an  important role in politics, and their rash use can predetermine the  outcome of negotiations.

As Masis Mayilyan wrote on his Facebook page, this is also the reason  why 'terms are not disputed, they are agreed upon".

"Along with the illegal blockade of the internationally recognized  Lachin (Kashatagh) corridor, Azerbaijan offers the citizens of the  Republic of Artsakh to integrate into its ranks under the threat of  genocide and ethnic cleansing.

The adoption by Artsakh of an integration agenda from the very  beginning would mean not only alienation from its own sovereignty and  legal rights, but also a rejection of the dream of the indigenous  Armenian people of Artsakh to live freely and safely in their  homeland. In our case, the "integration" term, which is quite popular  in international relations, means voluntary surrender," Mayilyan  emphasized.

In this regard, he drew attention to the fact that official Baku is  even trying to introduce another version of the "integration" term -  "reintegration", which means the return of Artsakh to Azerbaijan.

"However, it is well known that Nagorno-Karabakh was never part of  independent Azerbaijan, but was subordinated to Soviet Azerbaijan by  an illegal decision of a party body of a third side- the Caucasian  Bureau of the Russian Bolshevik Party. Any judgment about Artsakh's  relations with Azerbaijan makes sense only in the context of the  decision of the Bolsheviks and the adopted later than the  constitution of the USSR. The suspension of the constitution of the  USSR in 1991 closed this topic. The problem of the illegal claims of  the self-proclaimed Republic of Azerbaijan to the self-determined  Republic of Artsakh was revealed," the former Foreign Minister of  Artsakh emphasized.

According to Mayilyan, before talking about reintegration, the famous  "paper tiger" with rusting "iron paws" must first be able to restore  the Soviet Union. The representative of the President of Artsakh  added that if he is not able to do so, then everything else is a  bluff and deceit.

"Today is the 100th day of the illegal blockade of the  internationally recognized Lachin (Kashatagh) corridor. I am sure  that, if necessary, the people of Artsakh will endure another 1,000  or more days, but will not give up their legitimate collective rights  and their sovereignty. Making the right decisions and competently  using existing potential, we will emerge from the crisis imposed on  us becoming even stronger. There are more than enough grounds for  optimism," Mayilyan assured.
