All efforts will be made to make sure the upcoming elections in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh Republic) are fair, transparent and in line with democratic principles.
This is what President of Artsakh Bako Sahakyan stated in his speech during the joint session of the Security Councils of Armenia and Artsakh.
Touching upon the interior political situation in Artsakh, he stated the following: “You know that Artsakh will be holding the subsequent presidential and parliamentary elections in 2020. All efforts will be made to make sure the elections are fair, transparent and in line with democratic principles, in an atmosphere of stability and tolerance. I welcome Armenia’s willingness to provide active support to proper conduct of the elections and to engage observation missions from different countries around the world. This will also serve as a good opportunity for Artsakh to present itself to the world and become acknowledged as a civilized and democratic country once again.
These are the issues that I believed were necessary to discuss during this session. I would also like to express confidence that our close cooperation serves as a major factor for the solution to all issues.”
