YEREVAN, January 29, /ARKA/.The Los Angeles City Council unanimously adopted a resolution, introduced by Councilmember Paul Krekorian, recognizing the independence of Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.
The resolution says that the NKR “has for more than twenty years stayed true and faithful to its citizens by remaining independent while working to bring change and stability to the Caucasus region, and by holding free and fair elections and referendums that were widely declared as a model for the region.”
It calls on the international community to recognize the NKR as a free and independent state.
Four American states – Rhode Island, Maine, Louisiana and Massachusetts – have already recognized the independence of the NKR and urged the Senate and the U.S. administration to follow suit. -0-
