/PanARMENIAN.Net/ The Helsinki Final Act is one of the principal
international documents, Armenian Foreign Minister Vartan Oskanian
stated today at the presentation of the Armenian translation of
the Helsinki Final Act. In his words, though the Act was adopted
in 1975 it has not lost its value and importance. "Our task is to
spread these values in Armenia and prove that we abide by them,"
he said. When asked whether the principle of territorial integrity
fixed in the document conflicts with the settlement of the Nagorno
Karabakh issue, the Minister said that the Act maintains both the
principle of territorial integrity and the principle of right of a
nation for self-determination.
