France is concerned about the incidents near the ceasefire line in Nagorno-Karabakh. It deplores the loss of human lives, civilians in particular, which these incidents have already caused. It calls on all the parties to observe the ceasefire.
This conflict, nearly three decades old, can be settled only through negotiation between the parties under the aegis of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s Minsk Group, which we fully support. France therefore calls for an immediate return to the negotiation table. We shall spare no effort in achieving this goal.
