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.
