YEREVAN, September 22 (Itar-Tass) —— The Nagorno Karabakh problem is the top foreign political challenge for Armenia, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan said at a public reception on the occasion of the Armenian national holiday – Day of Independence on Friday.
“Our top foreign political challenge remains peaceful settlement of the Karabakh problem,” he said. “No matter how difficult it is, we should seek the ways to continue the negotiations to settle the Nagorno Karabakh problem,” he noted.
“If the efforts of the co-chairmen of the Minsk Group (OSCE on Nagorno Karabakh) have not brought any major successes yet, neither co-chairmen, moreover, nor this international format, as our neighbours (Azerbaijan – Itar-Tass) are frequently seeking to present this, are bearing responsibility for this fact,” the Armenian president said with confidence. “Those who regularly torpedo the process and the logic of the peace talks are responsible for this,” he underlined.
