Nalbandian says the declaration jeopardizes the shaky situation in the region.

Armenia criticized NATO’s Chicago Summit declaration, saying the document makes no references to people’s right to self-determination.

Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian, who represented Armenia at the summit, said the NATO declaration’s “worrisome” language runs counter to the existing peace plan drawn up by the U.S., French and Russian co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group.

“That could harm not only the Nagorno-Karabakh negotiating process but also jeopardize the shaky situation in the region,” he said, according to Anatolia news agency.

“We remain committed in our support of the territorial integrity, independence and sovereignty of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia and the Republic of Moldova, and will also continue to support efforts towards a peaceful settlement of these regional conflicts, based upon these principles and the norms of international law, the United Nations Charter, and the Helsinki Final Act,” the declaration said.

I see John. Are you aware that the Helsinki final act stresses both the territorial integrity of states and the right of self-determination of the communities living in those states? When Nato mentions one right, but not the the other, it tells AZ (and and people like you i suppose) go ahead and roll over those trouble makers from one side with tanks, while you starve them out from the other side with a blockade. But that's the objective, right John? Finish what turks started in 1915?

The armanian trouble makers are at it again. They are not even members of NATO so they have zero right to make any comments. Perhaps one day they will wake up and think why all their surrounding countries have closed their borders or have very bad relations with them. Could it be they have upset everyone?Even the russians dont like them.
