YEREVAN (ArmRadio)—Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian received today Ambassador Herbert Salber, the EU Special representative for the South Caucasus and the Conflict in Georgia.
Nalbandian briefed Salber on the harm Azerbaijani aggression against Nagorno-Karabakh has caused to the peace process and presented efforts on how to prevent consequences.
Salber mentioned that the issue has no military solution and the European Union supports the efforts of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs for targeting an exclusively peaceful solution to the issue.
The two exchanged thoughts on the possibilities of meeting again with Azerbaijan. Nalbandian stressed that the meetings should be aimed at preventing further Azeri aggression against Nagorno-Karabakh, the unconditional implementation of the trilateral ceasefire and ceasefire consolidation agreements of 1994-1995, and establishing processes to investigate ceasefire violations. According to Nalbandian, discussing these topics would create appropriate conditions for the continuation of the peace process.
The Foreign Minister and the OSCE Representative reflected on Armenia-European Union relations and negotiations on the legal basis of the relations.
