Q – Azerbaijan is protesting against the visit by the leader of Nagorno-Karabakh to France. What is your response?
A – France does not recognize the self-proclaimed Nagorno-Karabakh Republic. It does not maintain any relations with those who claim to be its representatives. As co-chair of the Minsk Group, France is working to ensure that a peaceful and lasting solution can be found and is conducting its mediation efforts in strict compliance with its duty of impartiality.
