Karabakh Foreign Ministry Welcomes Britain’s Stance on Scotland Status

Karabakh Foreign Ministry

STEPANAKERT—The Foreign Ministry of the Nagorno-Karabakh on Thursday welcomed Great Britain’s decision to hold a referendum on the future status of Scotland.

“London’s position proves once again that respect for human rights and nations’ self-determination is the priority for democratic states,” said the Karabakh Foreign Ministry statement.

“Freedom and respect for these rights are, actually, the highest values in the modern world. We are convinced that any attempts to hamper the realization of the fundamental human rights must be considered regardless of the political conjuncture and subjected to resolute and strict assessment by the international community,” added the statement.

“We can only hope that the position of Great Britain and other democratic states will positively impact Azerbaijan in accepting these realities and respecting human rights,” concluded the statement.

    To BBC
    * English Poets and The Parliament 
    Should recognize Armenians Genocide 
    They are much behind of Humans Right for the Armenians only
    Inviting-praising-respecting those whose
    Ancestries committed the first and ugliest genocide on earth …
    Shame on civilized England, a Christian State by name only…
    The parliaments of Scotland and Wales recognized our genocide..
    Why not the England aren’t they all defined under United Kingdom*…!
    Are they divided against Armenians only …
    And … Why!… Aren’t we humans…!
    * Great Britain is an old name no longer used…

    Karabakh shoud only hold referendum, if they only want Karabakh and not surrounding territories. If they want these territories too, they have also to ask the Azerbaijan refugees from there.
