"The Armenian side was not the one who violated the ceasefire. Here I have to ask a question to my Azerbaijani colleagues, the leadership of Azerbaijan. My first question is: why did Azerbaijan start a war against the people of the Artsakh Republic on September 27? Armenia, like Armenians around the world, including France, supports Nagorno-Karabakh.
The point is that for more than 20 years, peace talks have been going on, led by the OSCE Minsk Group, co-chaired by France, the United States and Russia, and those talks have been quite successful. There are hundreds of issues to resolve in the face of such complex issues. The Minsk process reduced the number of such issues:
When there is a ceasefire, everything is on the table. That is the whole point of having a Minsk Group with three co-chairs negotiating on everything, including seven regions, five regions, and finally, most importantly, the final status of Nagorno-Karabakh. Everything is on the negotiating table. But one thing is clear: we must stop the war and return to the negotiating table", the RA President Armen Sarkissian said in an interview with France 24.
