Heritage-submitted draft law on recognition of Karabakh independence
was discussed in Armenian parliament.

As Deputy Foreign Minister of Armenia Shavarsh Kocharyan noted during
the discussion, Armenia accepted Madrid principles and St. Petersburg
suggestions on Karabakh conflict settlement as a basis for further
negotiations.

~SMadrid document includes 3 principles of international law: non-use
of force, nations~R right for self-determination and territorial
integrity. Azeri side denies two of them (non-use of force, nations~R
right for self-determination), misrepresenting the third one, which
runs counter to UN regulations,~T the Deputy Foreign Minister stated.

~SAzerbaijan strives to preserve the status quo in the region,
which means Armenia has to work towards provision of its security,~T
Kocharyan pointed out.
