Azerbaijani FM discusses Nagorno-Karabakh conflict with his French counterpart

On October 19, 2020, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan Jeyhun Bayramov discussed the current situation in the Nagorno-Karabakh region during a telephone conversation with the Foreign Minister of France Jean Yves Le Drian, reports citing the press service of the MFA of Azerbaijan.

Minister Jeyhun Bayramov informed the French Foreign Minister of the violation of humanitarian ceasefire by the armed forces of Armenia for the second time after the formal declaration of the truce. He noted that intensive shelling of the Azerbaijani positions and an attempt to attack in the directions of Fuzuli, Jabrayil and Hadrut regions openly shows that Armenia is ignorant of the ceasefire and aims to regain the positions in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan. Minister emphasized that violation of humanitarian ceasefire shows once again the disinclination of the Armenian Republic to its commitments under international humanitarian law.

Minister Jean Yves Le Drian stressed the importance of implementing the humanitarian ceasefire and noted the necessity of substantial negotiations without delay under the auspices of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs.

Minister Jeyhun Bayramov emphasized that Armenia’s leadership bears responsibility for this war crime. He added that the withdrawal of all Armenian armed forces from the occupied territories of Azerbaijan in accordance with the related resolutions of the UN Security Council is necessary for ensuring peace in the region
