To the Editor: A question arises from Mr. Hrant Apovian’s admirably detailed 15-year history of all that has transpired regarding Karabakh (Asbarez, Sept. 16): Why the world’s 160 odd countries have not been canvassed to look for diplomatic recognition from those who have nothing to lose and might have an unforeseen benefit in their own politics by recognizing Karabakh? It is understood that it would be impractical for countries to establish embassies in Karabakh and vice-versa, but if diplomatic relations could be established without the necessity of exchanging resident diplomats in today’s world of high technology communications systems and rapid travel, the recognition could strengthen and fortify Karabakh’s de facto independence. Actually, would not recognition by any government change Karabakh’s independence from de facto to reality? Perre Haig Dana Point, Calif.
