Armenia doesn't view Kosovo as precedent

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenia's possible recognition of Kosovo's independence will not strain the Armenian-Russian relations, RA Prime Minister and President-elect Serzh Sargsyan said.



"Our relations record a long history but it doesn't think that Armenia should waive its interests only because our neighbors may be upset," he said.



"The Kosovo recognition issue needs serious discussion. We can't view it as a precedent, since Karabakh gained independence in compliance with the soviet law and can't be compared with any other conflict," he said.



"We do not intend to recognize Nagorno Karabakh's independence in foreseeable future. However, Armenia has always been an adherent to the right of nations to self-determination and in this aspect we welcome Kosovo's independence," the PM said, Novosti Armenia reports.
