We cannot make the same mistake all the time, moreover, that we simply don’t have alternative,” the RA NA President concluded his speech.

In reality, we recognized the territorial integrity of Armenia, and the fact of recognizing the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan is necessary for us to recognize the territorial integrity of Armenia, because the territorial integrity of Armenia is enclosed by Azerbaijan.
