Melkoumian Deman’s Recognition of “Paris Principles”

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–Karabakh Foreign Minister Naira Melkoumian in an interview with the Moscow-based "Nezavisimaya Gazeta" newspaper–claimed that the so-called "Paris principles" do exist–despite claims from officials in Baku who keep claiming that such principles do not exist. Melkoumian says these principles were adopted in Paris at the beginning of this year as a result of two meetings between presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan.

Naira Melkoumian did not reveal the contents of the principles–however–in an answer to a correspondent’s question if the "Paris principles" consider the three major deman’s of the Armenia’s on which Yerevan and Stepanakert have always insisted (exclusion of vertical submission–inadmissibility of an enclave’s status and security guarantees for Karabakh)–the minister said–"They do–and even more."
