Arménie / Azerbaïdjan - Q&R from the press briefing (30 November 2022)


What is the government’s position on the two resolutions adopted by the Senate and the National Assembly concerning Armenia and Azerbaijan ?

This parliamentary initiative does not represent an official government position; it was adopted independently, in keeping with the separation of powers doctrine.

The French government’s position is well known and the Minister has expressed it repeatedly, most recently on November 29: “France continues to urge the parties to move forward in these negotiations to seize this opportunity for peace.”

It was in this spirit that President Macron met with the Armenian and Azerbaijani presidents in Prague. That meeting resulted in the deployment of an EU observer mission to Armenia.
