Aghvan Vartanian in South America: "Artsakh's Independence Will Never be Negotiated"
"Azerbaijan tried to stifle the desire for freedom of the people of Artsakh and failed," stressed Vartanian in his speech to the Armenian community of Argentina. "Artsakh's victory was achieved through the blood of our heroes and the independence will never be negotiated."
"For years, the Minsk Group of the OSCE has tried to find a peaceful solution to the conflict while Azerbaijan continues to refuse it," he added, and called for support "all efforts aimed at strengthening the democratic institutions of the free and independent Republic of Nagorno Karabakh."
The day before, on Monday September 7, he was received in Montevideo by the Armenia-Uruguay Parliamentary Friendship Group. Vartanian met with Lawmakers Ruben Huelmo Martinez, Rafael Michelini, Pablo Gonzalez, Jorge Meroni, Dari Mendiondo, Susana Pereyra, Daniel Radio and others.
"We know that in recent years Turkey and Azerbaijan have been lobbying in South America. We are convinced that these countries and those political figures who know Armenia and the Armenian people will not put their geopolitical interests above human values and human rights," finished Vartanian.
