On December 1 and 2, on the initiative of the NKR Permanent Representation to Australia and the ARF Armenian National Committee of Australia, meetings and discussions were held in  the Australian Parliament  on the issue of  recognition of  the Armenian Genocide and settlement of the conflict between Azerbaijan and Karabakh. Leader of the NKR National Assembly’s ՛՛Dashnaktsutyun՛՛ faction David Ishkhanyan, who had a special guest status, the NKR Permanent Representative to Australia Kaylar Mikayelian, and representatives of the Armenian National Committee of Australia participated in the meetings.

David Ishkhanyan and Kaylar Mikayelian briefed the MPs on the war unleashed by Azerbaijan against Artsakh, state-building process in the Republic, the peaceful settlement of the conflict between Azerbaijan and Karabakh, as well as the current developments in the country.

In his speech, Australian MP John Alexander touched upon the settlement of the conflict between Azerbaijan and Karabakh and the 24th anniversary of Artsakh’s  independence stressing that "Today, the NKR has got a democratic system, a Government, a Parliament, and where human rights and freedom of the press are observed, which is completely the opposite of the neighboring Azerbaijan".

During the meetings the importance of the visit of the Australian MPs to Artsakh in the near future was also touched upon.  The visit will allow them to get firsthand information about Artsakh’s achievements and the country's daily life.
