Armenia-Azerbaijan - Incidents on the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan (27 May 2021)


France expresses its deep concern over the increasing number of incidents seen on the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan, the latest of which was the capture of six Armenian soldiers by Azerbaijani forces during the night of May 26.

France urges the parties to show the utmost restraint and to refrain from any provocation. The demarcation and delineation of the border between the two countries must be done through negotiations between the parties, rather than through actions on the ground.

We reaffirm President Macron’s statement of May 13.
