Bako Sahakyan: NKR independence and security are not subject to compromise

President of the Artsakh Republic Bako Sahakyan said that the Karabakh conflict should be resolved through compromises, but NKR’s independence and security cannot be among them.

As for Russia’s sale of weapons to Baku, Sahakyan noted that there is no reliable information on that. “Peace was achieved through Russia’s efforts, even if it is a relative peace. It is a country, which has a certain influence in the region, and we are extremely interested in Russia’s participation for the achievement of a final peace. And Moscow is rather interested in peace in Caucasus as a whole,” the President said.

Besides, he noted that Ukraine is a friendly country for Karabakh. “Unfortunately, we have no official ties with Ukraine, but we would like to establish economic, cultural and educational cooperation with it,” quoted Sahakyan as saying.
