Aram I urges courage to reject deal threatening Karabakh security

PanARMENIAN.Net - Catholicos of the Great House of Cilicia Aram I has said that the people of Nagorno-Karabakh have the courage to reject any proposal that could threaten the security of the Armenians of Artsakh (Karabakh).

"We must have the courage, and the people of Artsakh have the courage to reject any offer, coercion or agreement that could threaten the security of the Armenians of Artsakh and to question the will of the people of Artsakh to freely express their will," the Catholicos said in a tweet on Wednesday, May 3.

Karabakh President Arayik Harutyunyan said Tuesday that his government was not going to deviate from the principle of the right of peoples to self-determination.

Days earlier, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said that the number one beneficiary of the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is Artsakh and its people, which means nothing can be negotiated implemented in secret. According to the Prime Minister, the agenda of peace is aimed at overcoming the difficulties that followed the war, to guarantee the security, the rights and the future of the people.
