Armenian authorities are trying to find legal “reasons” to sign a peace treaty


YEREVAN. – Past Daily of the Republic of Armenia (RA) writes: The so-called “peace treaty” possible [with Azerbaijan] is one of the most discussed topics at the current stage, if not the most discussed.

In this context, it should be noted that the authorities [of Armenia] actually washed their hands of Artsakh [(Nagorno-Karabakh)]who [PM] Nikol Pashinyan [of Armenia] and his [political] The team is also not hiding in principle. Moreover, the latter constantly emphasize that Artsakh was recognized as part of Azerbaijan by previous authorities. [of Armenia] by signing the Alma-Ata declaration and joining the CIS (the fact is that thus the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan was recognized). The fact that such an “argument” is absolutely bankrupt and groundless from a legal point of view has been pointed out by many specialists more than once.

Furthermore, the signing of any document by the RA authorities that would hand over Artsakh to Azerbaijan would directly contradict the RA Declaration of Independence where it is clearly stated that the RA recognizes Artsakh’s right to independence. self-determination, which was ratified by the Supreme Council in 1990. The fact is that the Declaration of Independence is the founding document of the state and the basis of the Constitution of RA. Moreover, it is no coincidence that the RA Constitution begins by citing the Declaration of Independence itself. According to information from the Past newspaper, in fact, the authorities [of Armenia] also do all this very well.

As a result, according to our sources, Nikol Pashinyan has now created a so-called “working group” that is working on the legal part of the so-called “peace treaty”, trying to find various constitutional “gaps” – adapting it to their political taste and create legal “reasons” for signing a potential document. According to our information, this “commission” includes a number of lawyers in the service of Pashinyan’s power, who have already started working.

By the way, in a conversation with the newspaper, several well-known lawyers and constitutional experts said that the theories spread by Pashinyan and his [political] team on the mentioned subject are unconstitutional and cannot have any legal value.
