• Armenia will recognize the Nagorno Karabakh Republic
• Legally formalise its responsibility for the security of the Karabakh
• Reinforce the security zone around Karabakh
• Further reforms in Armenia to ensure effective development of the economy
Kocharian also said that the Minsk Group co-chairmen are working to the maximum of their mandate. He also pointed out that the best format for the negotiations would be “between Azerbaijan and Nagorno Karabakh with an active participation of Armenia.”

Azad Hye's interview with the Editor of Gibrahayer e-magazine, Simon Aynedjian

... "We need to keep under check our organisations and parties and this is done through democratic institutions and procedures as well as transparency. In the case of party members and people involved in community affairs it is achieved through increased participation in our community structures and decision making processes."
"I would like to think that Gibrahayer is also a tool that besides the information gateway it provides to its readers, it also invites them to think and act on the way we live our life in our communities and the way we contribute to our homelands."
... "We feel we are an integral part of Cyprus. It is important that Armenians in Cyprus live and prosper. We feel that we have to stay here to safeguard whatever belongs to us: our church, our schools, our history, our homes, having in mind our new role of aiding economically and politically our newly formed Republic of Armenia and newly liberated lands in Artsakh and supporting our national cause. I am convinced that the Armenians of Cyprus will also become an example of co-existence with the Turkish Cypriots and as an extension will pave the road for a new Armeno-Turkish understanding."
