The vice-speaker of Armenian parliament Eduard Sharmazanov issued comments in response to Azerbaijani President’s statements on Nagorno Karabakh problem.
During a governmental meeting in Baku Ilham Aliyev said that Azerbaijan’s flag will wave in Stepanakert and Shushi one day.
“First, Azerbaijan must halt its arms race and military rhetoric. Second, it must prepare Azerbaijani public for peace and not for war. Third, if Aliyev dreams to see Azerbaijan’s flag in Stepanakert, it must establish diplomatic relations with independent republic of Artsakh, as a result of which Artsakh’s flag will wave at the embassy of NKR in Azerbaijan, with Azeri flag waving at the embassy of Azerbaijan in Stepanakert. Sooner of later, Baku will realize that there is no alternative to international recognition of NKR,” Mr. Sharmazanov said.
