The people of Karabakh and their self-defence forces have, since 1988, been fighting for democracy and self-determination, massively supported by a referendum held in December 1991. They are natives of Karabakh, who have inhabited the area for more than 1,000 years. Their desire for self-rule has the wholehearted support of every Armenian, wherever they may be.
As a London member of the Armenian Community Council of Great Britain and a resident in this country for 30 years, I wish to express my gratitude to the Independent for exposing this illegal behaviour in the interests of peace and humanity.
I wonder, are we to witness another 'arms for Iraq' scandal from our government? Perhaps the Prime Minister will issue a statement condemning the officials involved in this murky business.
