YEREVAN — After a visit to the Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh the Deputy of the European Parliament Inaki Razabalbeitia Fernandez and the member of the Parliament of Spain John Iñárritu Garcia have changed their opinion and view about Artsakh.

Fernandez,born in Donostia, Basque Country, is a champion of Basque Country’s independence. “We visited Nagorno-Karabakh a few days ago and expected to see tanks and armed people. But it is a fully democratic state, which is seeking to acquire new values. I will take the image of the country along,” he said at a press conference held at Armenpress hall.

García, who was born in Basque Country as well, noted that the European Union should be more active and be involved in the peace process together with Nagorno-Karabakh.

“Similarly to Kosovo, when the problem was settled soon and the international community recognized [Kosovo], the Nagorno-Karabakh problem must be resolved, in a peaceful way and on the basis of three principles of international law,” he said.

The MEP promised their step forward will be to raise the Nagorno-Karabakh problem in the European Parliament.

“I consider the principles of peoples’ self-determination important. And we struggled for self-determination in our country. We are going to do the same for the Nagorno-Karabakh people and we are not afraid of black lists. Self-determination is important for all the peoples of the world as we think it is the most important democratic right,” Inaki Razabalbeitia Fernandez said.
