The Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs spoke in turn to her Armenian and Azerbaijani counterparts, Mr Ararat Mirzoyan and Mr Jeyhun Bayramov respectively, on the evening of Tuesday 13 September.
She expressed France’s very deep concern about the large-scale military operations on the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan and the strikes that have hit Armenian territory. She signalled her commitment to Armenia’s territorial integrity and repeated that the use of force is unacceptable. She called on the parties to abide by the ceasefire and return to the negotiating table.
She told her counterparts that tomorrow France will put the issue on the agenda of the United Nations Security Council, whose presidency it currently holds.
