YEREVAN, May 5. /TASS/. Armenia’s government approved at a session on Thursday a legislative initiative of opposition lawmakers on recognizing Nagorno-Karabakh and sent it for consideration to the republic’s parliament.

The draft law was initiated by MPs Zaruhi Postanjyan and Hrant Bagratyan. In Armenia, any legislative initiative of parliamentarians needs to get a preliminary conclusion of the country’s government.

Armenian Deputy Foreign Minister Shavarsh Kocharyan who presented the document said the conclusion is explained by "results of discussions between Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh taking into consideration the possible development" of the situation, "including external factors."

This is not the first proposal of the opposition to recognize the Nagorno-Karabakh republic. But previously the government has always rejected such initiatives saying that the move could hamper the negotiating process on settling the Karabakh conflict with the mediation of the Minsk Group of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) co-chaired by Russia, France and the United States.
