During the rally at Freedom Square, leader of the Armenian National Congress (HAK) Levon Ter-Petrosyan began his speech with his evaluations of the declaration that the presidents of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairing countries adopted in Mexico on June 18. Ter-Petrosyan said he didn't share the view that this was a typical, subsequent declaration.
He cited excerpts from declarations made by the leaders of the mediating countries during the past couple of years to stress the importance of the declaration adopted in Mexico.
"We call upon the Presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan to fulfill the obligation of accelerating concordance with the Basic Principles, which they had assumed in a joint declaration made in Sochi on January 23, 2012," said Ter-Petrosyan, adding that it wasn't hard to understand how much the countries' position on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict had coarsened.
Ter-Petrosyan's speech continues.
