Minister Champagne has closely followed the developments of the war in Artsakh in the past 40+ days and has been supportive of Armenia. Unfortunately, words alone can’t stop the Turkish-Azeri aggression. We urge Canada to speak up in defence of the Armenian population of Artsakh, its right to self-determination, to closely assess the agreement signed by Russia, Azerbaijan and Armenia, making sure the rights and interests of Artsakh & Armenia are protected and taken into consideration, mainly:
The status of Nagorno-Karabakh
Immediate humanitarian and medical aid
A lasting, fair and peaceful solution to the conflict acceptable to all parties
Condemnation of Turkey for its direct involvement in the aggression against Artsakh
Immediate return to negotiations under the auspices of the OSCE Minsk Group
Protection of Armenian cultural / historical sites and monuments.
