Armenian government can recognize Nagorno-Karabakh republic, if Azerbaijan renews a war

The government of Armenia on Thursday, May 5 endorsed a draft law for the recognition of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic.
The draft law will further be introduced to Armenia’s National Assembly.
Earlier, MPs Hrant Bagratyan and Zaruhi Postanjyan introduced the proposal to the government.
According to them, Nagorno Karabakh meets the preconditions of international law for a sovereign state.
Yerevan’s decision to recognize Nagorno Karabakh’s independence will be determined by negotiations between the two Armenian states, also taking into consideration further developments and external factors, the Deputy Foreign Minister said later.
“There is no alternative to a peaceful settlement,” Shavarsh Kocharyan said.
“And if Azerbaijan attempts to avoid reaching a ceasefire and renews aggression, the issue of recognition will certainly be included in the agenda.”
Asked if the recognition would mean an end to the Minsk Group-mediated peace process, Kocharyan said: “It is Azerbaijan’s aggression that would bring the process to an end.”
