I really expect France to recognize independence of Nagorno Karabakh – PM Pashinyan

Prime Minister expects France to recognize the independence of Nagorno Karabakh, ARMENPRESS reports Pashinyan told Tv5Monde.

‘’I want to emphasize the satisfaction of the Armenian people, Armenia and Nagorno Karabakh for the sincere, truth-based positions of the French President. I can say that I expect the French President, France to recognize the independence of Nagorno Karabakh, because today there is no other option to solve the concerns raised by Emmanuel Macron (but the recognition), because this can lead to a huge humanitarian disaster, but also this can spread its terroristic waves in our region in the larger sense. And of course, this is a direct threat to the global security, given the factor and policy of Turkey. My expectation is really that France recognizes the independence of Nagorno Karabakh’’, Pashinyan said.
