Ex-FM: fair elections in Artsakh important for conflict settlement

PanARMENIAN.Net - Ex-foreign minister of Armenia, Prosperous Armenia party member Vartan Oskanian commented on ongoing presidential polls in Artsakh.

In his Facebook post, the politician stressed that fair and competitive elections in the republic are important in Karabakh conflict settlement progress.

“A recent Freedom House report listed Artsakh as well as Azerbaijan among non-free countries, while Armenia was named partially free,” Oskanian said.

According to the politician, Artsakh was compared to Azerbaijan in the fact that in 2010 NKR parliamentary polls, no opposition member made it to the national assembly.

As Oskanian noted, with Karabakh settlement progresss in a standstill, it’s vital to both Armenia and NKR not to be compared to Azerbaijan as far as democratic values go.

“Armenian diplomacy must dtrive to make the international community aware that Artsakh has used its “right to self determination,” having already determined its position.
