"We value the right of people of Nagorno Karabakh to decide their own fate, an important realization of this right," said Pashinyan.
According to him, the conflict must be resolved peacefully.
"The basis of the decision should be based on the principle of equality of peoples and self-determination. You need to give new impetus to the international recognition of the Artsakh Republic," said Pashinyan.
"If Azerbaijan declares that it is ready to recognize the right of Artsakh people to self-determination, then we can talk about a compromise solution to the conflict. It is a reality. Azerbaijan's refusal of the recognition of this right leaves no room to talk about compromise," - said the candidate for Prime Minister of Armenia.
