- 18 February 2017
Member of Parliament Kyiv Regional Rada, ethnic armenian Armen Shaharyants, made a statement about joining «Armenia Azerbaijan Peace Platform»
The statement said:
Recognizing the need for a peaceful solution of the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and taking into account the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the Republic of Azerbaijan and Armenia, as well as the internationally recognized borders of both states, realizing the importance of implementation of the relevant resolutions adopted by the UN Security Council, while expressing support for the OSCE Minsk Group's efforts to address conflict, I express support for the Platform for peace, whose purpose is to establish and maintain peace and order in the South Caucasus region. I regret that as a result of the unresolved conflict, presenting younger generations in both countries about each other is formed only in the context of war. Based on the foregoing, we support the idea of â€‹â€‹peaceful coexistence of peoples and solutions of protracted conflicts. Any conflicts should be resolved peacefully. I welcome this initiative. Bad peace is better than a good quarrel, and that's a fact. I'm open-minded person. I'm against the war, and ready to visit Baku.
Therefore, I declare about joining to «Armenia Azerbaijan Peace Platform»
