STEPANAKERT'S PARTICIPATION IN KARABAKH PEACE TALKS IS NECESSITY: NKR
PRESIDENT


STEPANAKERT, SEPTEMBER 29. ARMINFO. Stepanakert's participation in
the Karabakh peace talks is a necessity, President of the Nagorno
Karabakh Republic Arkady Ghoukassyan said during a Wednesday meeting
with the students of two Armenian colleges of Australia who have been
invited to NKR by Australian businessman Hakop Abulakyan, the owner
of Hotel Nairi in Stepanakert.

Ghoukassyan told the students about the current state of the Karabakh
peace process. He expressed regret that Azerbaijan keeps pressuring
the international community to recognizing Armenia as an aggressor.
"That's why Baku is insisting on bilateral talks with Armenia. As
soon as Azerbaijan realizes that this makes no sense the trilateral
talks will be resumed," Ghoukassyan said.
