Yerevan threatens to recognize Karabakh

Armenian Foreign Minister Eduard Nalbandyan said that Armenia will recognize Nagorno-Karabakh's independence if a war that cannot be stopped begins.

"This will mean the end of negotiations with all the consequences," the minister said at the 6th Armenia-Diaspora Forum.

At the same time, the head of the foreign ministry noted that it is impossible to solve the conflict only through recognition.

"If all the issues were resolved through recognition, we would have long ago recognized it. The negotiations are under way and we want to resolve the issue peacefully together with the international community. We will continue negotiations as much as possible. The war is not a solution," Interfax cited Nalbandyan as saying.
