In an interview with Armenpress, the EU's special representative for the South Caucasus and the crisis in Georgia, Toivo Klaar, touched on the Armenian-Azerbaijani relations and the situation in the South Caucasus.
Accroding to Klaar, it is quite logical that any road, any railway that goes through Armenian territory is controlled by Armenia, or any road or railway that goes through Azerbaijani territory or goes through, German territory, is controlled by the country in question.
As for the Crossroads of Peace project proposed by the Armenian authorities, Klaar noted that the European Union supports it.
"We absolutely share that vision of an open South Caucasus where railway and road connections are open, and countries are reconnected in a way that they were at the end of the Soviet period and even more so, because also the road and railway connections across to Türkiye, and naturally Iran, which is already the case, but also to Türkiye, should also be open. That is how we see the future, absolutely, our vision of a South Caucasus at peace is one where these transport connections are all open again and there is trade, there is people travelling across the various frontiers," Klaar said.
