Council Of Paris Calls On Government To Recognize Republic Of Artsakh

(Armenpress)- The Council of Paris has adopted a resolution, calling on the French Minister of Europe and Foreign Affairs to urge France to recognize the Republic of Artsakh, the Facebook page of the Foreign Ministry of Armenia informs.

The resolution cites numerous factors for this initiative, including the military aggression of Azerbaijan against Artsakh sponsored by Turkey and involvement of jihadist militants from Syria, the humanitarian situation in Artsakh resulted from the airstrikes of Azerbaijani armed forces as a result of which 80% of the infrastructures of Stepanakert have been destroyed.

The resolution also notes that France, which is an OSCE Minsk Group Co-chair, did not participate in the signing of the ceasefire on November 9 under the mediation of Russia, where the victory of power predominated over the victory of a dialogue.

It also notes that despite the deployment of the Russian peacekeepers in Nagorno Karabakh (Artsakh), the existence of Nagorno Karabakh is under existential threat.
