YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 1, NOYAN TAPAN. Applications to the leaderships of
the Republic of Armenia and Nagorno Karabakh were adopted at the August
27 special sitting of presidium of the Constitutional Law Union (CLU)
in connection with the situation formed in the region. They express
disagreement and concern over the so-called Madrid principles of
settlement circulated in the negotiations proceeding over the Nagorno
Karabakh problem.

The application addressed to the RA authorities, in particular,
read: "We call the RA leadership for categorically rejecting the
so-called Madrid principles voiced by Matthew Bryza and binding large
one-sided concessions and for taking active steps by the international
community aimed at NKR's reunification with RA or recognition of NKR
independence." At the same time, CLU considers it necessary to exert
efforts to make NKR a full side of the negotiations.

And CLU called NKR leadership for "at this stage more actively
expressing NKR population's inflexible will on its innate and
inalienable rights, conveying it to the leaders of RF and CSTO other
countries, the U.S., European Union countries, the Arab world, and
of other countries, their media and public."

CLU also expressed confidence that sooner or later Armenia should
recognize the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, but it
should be done after achieving uniterrupted work of RA transport
communication and guarantees of Javakhk population's security.
