PARIS — On December 12, Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR) President Bako Sahakian in Paris, France, attended the presentation of renowned Spanish opera singer Montserrat Caballé’s album called “Armenia and Artsakh – An Isle of Christianity”.

In his speech the President noted the historical significance of this event for Artsakh, adding that Montserrat Caballé continued the mission of historical Christian preachers and through high art not only introduced Artsakh to the world but also sent a peculiar message to humanity to preserve the Christian values.

The Karabakh leader expressed his gratitude to the world-famous singer and all those who participated in the implementation of the project, stressing that it was the best manifestation of sincere friendship.
Catholicos of All Armenians Karekin II, Primate of the Artsakh Diocese of the Armenian Apostolic Church Archbishop Barkev Martirosian, ambassadors extraordinary and plenipotentiary of the Republic of Armenia to Switzerland and France Charles Aznavour and Vigen Chitechian, member of the British Parliament’s House of Lords Baroness Caroline Cox, a group of French MPs, state officials from NKR and Armenia, world-famous stars, Armenian philanthropists, representatives of the Diaspora partook in the event.

Caballé visited Karabakh in June angering Azerbaijan that “blacklisted” the opera diva as a persona non grata. Later this year Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry released a list of more than 330 individuals declared personae non grata for visits to Baku, including a number of prominent political and cultural figures, scientists, entrepreneurs from different countries of the world.
