YEREVAN. ?ˆ“ The introduction, at the California State Assembly, of the draft resolution on the recognition of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR) has to be a part of the general American policy.?
NKR National Assembly deputy Vahram Atanesyan told the aforesaid to Armenian News-NEWS.am.? ? ?
his words, such an initiative is positive because several American
states already have expressed their approach toward the matter of
Nagorno-Karabakh?ˆ™s recognition, and they have called upon the US authorities to assist in the exercising of the right to self-determination of the people of Karabakh.? ? ? ?
"If this matter has become a subject for discussion at the California legislature, in my view, we need to see a pattern in it considering that Nagorno-Karabakh's recognition process in the US continues at the level of the legislative bodies of the American states," Atanesyan concluded.? ?
To note, California Assemblyman Mike Gatto has introduced a resolution to recognize the Nagorno-KarabakhRepublic as a sovereign state.
