Armenia has been losing information war with Azerbaijan beginning from 1996, said deputy of the Heritage parliamentary faction of the Armenian National Assembly Larisa Alaverdyan.
She said the concept of self-determination of Nagorno Karabakh as part of Azerbaijan has existed in the talks on the resolution of Nagorno Karabakh conflict since formation of the OSCE Minsk Group.

"Nagorno Karabakh obtained the right for self-determination in 1918 beyond any dependence on Azerbaijan and preserved this right through the whole period of the USSR. Following USSR collapse, the Nagorno Karabakh residents won this right by the cost of great losses. In these conditions, the aforementioned concept is undoubtedly losing for Armenia", noted she.

The deputy also considers that the issue of strategy on "Nagorno Karabakh" is not exhausted today, as the composition of Armenia's political elite, defining the country's policy on "Nagorno Karabakh" has almost not changed since 1996.

The deputy stressed that no cardinal steps for definition of the so called "Nagorno Karabakh Republic" had been made through the past ten years.

She said this is because Armenian political figures, who make declarations on Nagorno Karabakh, including abroad, are not also competent. "Therefore, miscalculations often occur in conditions of unstable political situation, which is in favor of our opponent", said Alaverdyan.

Moreover, she said the dominant of Azerbaijan's position in the international arena, infringes even on Armenia. "I am obliged to state with anxiety that the present-day generation of Armenian political scientists uses the concepts on Karabakh, of which Azerbaijani side take advantage", noted Alaverdyan.
