This is a fight for dignity, this is a fight of owning and deciding their own destiny in their own country, and the independence of Artsakh has no alternative. We have 26-year old state with its elected President, parliament, opposition and power, civil society and 150.000 hero population, who chose the path of living with dignity. The Republic of Armenia, as a warrant of Artsakh Republic, will not spare any effort, in order we reach the peaceful solution of the issue.”
