BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – The government in the Parisian suburb of Alfortville, southeast of Paris, voted in favor of recognizing the independence of the Karabakh Republic.

The deputy mayor of the suburb, Garo Khachikian, said on his Twitter account that the municipality members voted unanimously in favor of the French government’s recognition of the independence of the republic, which Azerbaijan considers part of its territory.

The city’s municipality also agreed to provide financial and humanitarian aid to the residents of the republic.

This comes against the backdrop of continued hostilities between Azerbaijan and the Armenian forces of the Karabakh Republic.

The Turks may find that trying to committe genocides is not tolerated any more. No matter whether they vote in favour of them or not. p.s. I do not see why Wilson’s 14 points, that are about the self determination of the nations, do not apply to the Armenians in the ancient autonomous Nagorno-Karabakh Oblast that is the named Artsakh Republic since 2017. Autonomous regions (Russian Автономная область, Awtonomnaja oblast ‘, abbreviated AO) offered smaller peoples limited cultural autonomy within the Union Republics of the USSR. In theory, the autonomous regions were states. After the declaration of independence of the two… Read more »
