Karabakh's secure existence within Azerbaijan impossible, says Armenia

PanARMENIAN.Net - The secure existence of the Armenians of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) within Azerbaijan is impossible, and the world should recognize their right to self-determination, speaker of the Armenian National Assembly Ararat Mirzoyan said on Tuesday, May 4.

According to Mirzoyan, barbarity towards Armenian captives being held in Azerbaijan, as well as the opening of the "disgraceful" trophy park in Baku are evidence of Azerbaijan's position.

The speaker said fighting for the recognition of Artsakh's right to self-determination is the policy that the Republic of Armenia will continue to pursue. "We shall work closely in this direction with our international colleagues," he added.

Mirzoyan's comments came after images posted on social media platforms revealed that Azerbaijan has removed the domes of the iconic cathedral in the city of Shushi, which came under the control of Baku during the war in fall 2020, pictures posted online reveal.
