YEREVAN (Yerkir)–The Foreign Ministry (MFA) of Mountainous Karabagh Republic (MKR) is not going to comment on statemen’s made by International Crisis Group Caucasus Project Director Sabine Freizer–who said that "Nagorno Karabagh is the most militarized territory in the world," citing the 20,000 strong MKR Defense Army.
"By calling MKR the most militarized territory–Ms. Freizer first exaggerates the figures and second–[makes her assumptions based on] the number of military per head. She is wrong in both cases," said a representative of the Foreign Ministry.
The Ministry thinks that any statemen’s made prior to the meeting of the Armenian and Azeri Presidents in France on February 10-11–could negatively affect negotiations of the Karabagh conflict settlement.
