Anne Hidalgo, Valérie Pécresse, Laurent Wauquiez, Michèle Rubirola and 173 signatories, in collaboration with the Coordination Council of Armenian Organizations in France, plead so that France re-examines “its strategy in the conflict” which opposes the ‘Armenia to Azerbaijan.
“Faced with all of these events, it is clear that the area of neutrality in which France has been forcing itself for several decades to create a path to peace no longer exists. It now offers more guarantees of impunity for the benefit of Azerbaijani aggressions carried out in close consultation with its Turkish ally, than levers for seeking a concerted solution to the conflict. For all of these reasons, we consider that French diplomacy must review its strategy in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict: strongly denounce the Azerbaijani aggression and demand an immediate end to the violence on the part of Azerbaijan, otherwise show massive support for the Nagorno-Karabakh authorities which will require recognition of their full legitimacy. ”
