ARMENPRESS – A multidimensional policy for achieving the international recognition of Nagorno Karabakh Republic has been elaborated which starts from municipal and regional levels aiming to transfer onto state level, “Armenpress” reports President of NKR Bako Sahakyan told Lenta.ru. He noted that a significant achievement in this context has been recorded.
“Several American States such as Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine, Louisiana, California, Georgia, Hawaii, Australian New South Wales state, the Basque Country, as well as numerous major cities such as Los Angeles have adopted declarations supporting the recognition of our state. We continue expanding our activities in this direction and hope that administrative districts of other countries will also recognize our independence”, Bako Sahakyan said.
