The Prime Minister of Armenia announced his readiness to urgently discuss tensions on the border with the President of Azerbaijan
The head of the Armenian government, Nikol Pashinyan, expressed his readiness to hold an urgent discussion of the situation on the border of Armenia and Azerbaijan. He stated this to French President Emmanuel Macron in a telephone conversation, the press service of the Armenian government reports.
According to Pashinyan, Yerevan adheres to the agreements that were reached on October 6, 2022 in Prague and May 14, 2023 in Brussels. He noted that he wants to resolve the current situation constructively, exclusively through diplomatic methods.
The Prime Minister of Armenia and the President of France discussed the humanitarian crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh, the transfer of Azerbaijani troops to its borders and the blocking of the Lachin corridor by Azerbaijan. Macron told Pashinyan that tension on the borders of the two states needs to be reduced, to which the Armenian prime minister declared his readiness to urgently negotiate with the Azerbaijani prime minister.
True, nothing concrete was said as a result of this telephone conversation. Macron repeated standard phrases to Pashinyan about the need to resolve the conflict situation peacefully, prevent escalation and resolve humanitarian issues. Yerevan found itself hostage to its own two-faced policy, trying to balance between Russia and the West. There is no doubt that the West, especially against the backdrop of the much more important Ukrainian conflict for it, will not stand up for Armenia in any way other than words.
In this case, no one will quarrel with Azerbaijan and, especially, with Turkey. Suffice it to recall how easily the Scandinavian countries sacrificed the “friends of the Scandinavian socialists” - the Kurdish radicals, when it came to the need to get approval for Finland and Sweden to join NATO from Ankara. Sweden, however, has still not been accepted into NATO, but Swedish politicians are already distancing themselves from the Kurdish movement.
