Nagorno-Karabakh Republic or the Artsakh Republic was established after a referendum in 1991, Azerbaijan does not recognize Nagorno-Karabakh independence.
The Armenian government intends to consider the possibility of recognizing the independence of the self-proclaimed Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, said Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan during his speech in parliament.
This issue is already on the agenda of the Armenian government.
“We must discuss it very seriously. We are considering all scenarios of developments,” he noted.
Pashinyan also stated that the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia in Nagorno-Karabakh may extend beyond the Caucasus region.
“The war may go beyond the region and have a wider scale. I urge the international community to use all levers and prevent Turkey from getting involved in the conflict,” Pashinyan stressed.
He believes that the OSCE and the international community should intervene and focus their attention on the gravity of this situation.
Pashinyan added that the world is now on the verge of a large-scale war in the South Caucasus, which could have the most unpredictable consequences.
The Nagorno-Karabakh Republic or the Artsakh Republic was created after a referendum in 1991. Azerbaijan does not recognize Nagorno-Karabakh’s independence and believes that the territory was occupied by Armenia. Nor did the world community recognize the Republic of Artsakh.
Let’s remind that on Sunday Azerbaijan launched an offensive along the line of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. According to the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry, at least 6 settlements have already been taken under Baku’s control.
