STEPANAKERT — Armenia’s former president Levon Ter-Petrosian on Tuesday met with Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR) President Bako Sahakian on the second day of his trip to Stepanakert.

According to the press service of the NKR president, “a range of issues related to the wide-scale military operations unleashed by the enemy from 2 to 5 April was discussed during the meeting.”

“President Sahakian stressed the importance of unity demonstrated by political forces in those difficult times and their role in addressing challenges facing our people,” it said.

Ter-Petrosian said he discussed with Sahakian “all issues preoccupying us today.” “You are aware of the concerns, determination and confidence of the Armenian and Nagorno-Karabakh authorities’” he told reporters. “I think that the authorities are doing, in a serene and reserved manner, what is required by the existing situation.”

According to Sahakian’s spokesman, Davit Babayan, Ter-Petrosian also met in Stepanakert with Karabakh’s parliament speaker, prime minister and top army generals.

In the wake of the escalation of the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh earlier last month, Ter-Petrosian also initiated a meeting with Armenia’s incumbent President Serzh Sarkisian, whose administration he has been critical of since 2008.

In an interview with the ilur.am website following his April 9 meeting with Sarkisian, Ter-Petrosian called on the Armenian opposition to put aside its differences with the government ahead of what he thought would be important negotiations with Azerbaijan.
