Karabakh recognition to gain pace if Baku renews aggression: Deputy FM

PanARMENIAN.Net - Yerevan’s decision to recognize Nagorno Karabakh’s independence will be determined by negotiations between the two Armenian states, also taking into consideration further developments and external factors, the Deputy Foreign Minister said.

“There is no alternative to a peaceful settlement,” Shavarsh Kocharyan said.

“And if Azerbaijan attempts to avoid reaching a ceasefire and renews aggression, the issue of recognition will certainly be included in the agenda.”

Asked if the recognition would mean an end to the Minsk Group-mediated peace process, Kocharyan said: “It is Azerbaijan’s aggression that would bring the process to an end.”
