French President Emmanuel Macron had a video link with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, reports RIA News with reference to the Elysee Palace.
During the talks, Macron noted that the end of hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh should allow starting “good faith negotiations” to protect the region’s population and ensure the return home of tens of thousands of people.
In addition, the French leader announced his desire to take measures to protect the religious and cultural heritage of Nagorno-Karabakh.
Earlier it was reported that the European Union will allocate emergency assistance to Nagorno-Karabakh in the amount of three million euros. These funds will be used to provide humanitarian assistance to the citizens most affected by the conflict in the region.
Let us remind you that on November 9, Armenia and Azerbaijan, through the mediation of the Russian Federation, concluded an agreement on the cessation of hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh. According to the agreements, the opposing sides remain in their positions, and Russian peacekeepers are deployed in the region.
