Armenian parliament to discuss Karabakh independence

Armenia’s parliament will discuss Thursday the possibility of recognizing breakaway Nagorno-Karabakh’s independence, yet many admit that international considerations effectively preclude Yerevan from making any such acknowledgement.

“Armenia cannot make this decision at the moment, no matter how much they want it, because they attach the utmost importance to mediators’ diplomatic efforts for a solution to the [Nagorno-Karabakh problem],” Manvel Sargsyan, a Karabakh political figure, recently told the Hurriyet Daily News & Economic Review.

The issue has been brought to the agenda by the country’s strongest opposition party, Jarankutyun. Although the party raised the same issue in 2007, it failed, said Sargsyan.
