YEREVAN-The draft law on recognition of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic co-authored by Zaruhi Postanjyan and Hrant Bagratyan is on the agenda of the forthcoming government sitting.

According to the Government opinion on the draft law, “the adoption of the bill submitted to the Republic of Armenia government depends on the results of discussions between Armenia and Artsakh, with consideration of the future developments and external factors.”

“Should Azerbaijan unleash new military offensive, the issue of recognition on Nagorno-Karabakh will be brought to agenda,” Deputy Foreign Minister Shavarsh Kocharyan said.

He clarified that the issue on the agenda of the forthcoming sitting refers to the approval of government opinion on the draft law on recognition of Artsakh, not the bill itself.

“According to the government opinion, recognition depends on the future developments. Should Azerbaijan unleash new military offensive, the issue of recognition on Nagorno-Karabakh will come into agenda,” Kocharyan said in comments to Panorama.am.
