Baroness Cox Discusses Armenia Karabakh

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–Karabakh’s future is still in danger as the front has moved from the battlefield to the political field–British House of Lords Deputy Speaker–Baroness Caroline Cox said at a Monday meeting with the Presidium of the Armenian Academy of Sciences.

Baroness Cox voiced regret over the fact that the world–being ignorant of Armenian history–judges Armenia and Karabakh in a distorted way as it is presented by Turkey and Azerbaijan both of which are active propagandists–unlike Armenia. She voiced confidence that Armenia will win the fight–if it tells the world the truth about the Armenian history–in particular about Karabakh.

The Baroness stressed the importance of publishing the Russian translation of the book "Ethnic Cleansing Goes On: War in Nagorno-Karabakh" written by Caroline Cox and John Eibner. The book–the English version of which was published in 1993–contains an official report of the House of Lords–July 1–1997–report on "Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijan."

She also voiced the same concern at a meeting with students at the Yerevan Brusov Institute of Foreign Languages. The Baroness called on students to make their contribution so that the truth on Karabakh be known in the world. Rector Suren Zolian awarded Baroness Cox with a medal marking the 60th anniversary of the Institute.

Baroness Cox expressed satisfaction with her recent visit to Karabakh. During that–her 37th visit–the British delegates fixed the flags of Scotland–Great Britain–Wales–Finland and Germany at a hill near Shoushi as a token those countries’ support of Karabakh and the Armenian people.
