Kocharian: Karabakh independence not article of commerce

PanARMENIAN.Net - "The situation in Nagorno Karabakh is far from being completely settled, although I believe it's possible," Armenian President Robert Kocharian said at Imperial Alexander University of Helsinki.

There is a possibility of a stepwise resolution but it should be package deal, according to him.

"Independence of Nagorno Karabakh cannot be an article of commerce. No one sells freedom. Selling others' freedom is immoral," the President said.

Discussing the problem with Finnish President Tarja Halonen, the Armenian leader focused on Finland's coming presidency in the OSCE.

"Finland will attempt to guide the process correctly," Mrs. Halonen remarked.

For his part, the President Kocharian noted that during Finland's chairmanship in the EU, Armenia signed cooperation agreements with the European Union and voiced opinion that "in most cases our standpoints meet," ITAR-TASS reports.
