In the view of the recent resolution passed by the Senate, French Foreign Ministry commented on the government's official stance in the regard of recognition of self-proclaimed Nagorno-Karabakh republic. The commentary has been released by the press office of the Foreign Ministry.
"On November 25, the Senate passed the decree, which contains an urge to recognize the self-proclaimed Nagorno-Karabakh republic by the French government. During the debates followed by the vote, Mr. Jean-Batiste Lemoine, State Secretary for Tourism (...) reiterated the position of the French government on this question: France does not recognize the self-proclaimed republic of Nagorno-Karabakh", the Ministry reported.
A representative of the Ministry claimed that France, the member of the OSCE Minsk Group co-organizer is bound to be working on solution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, by the means of talks - specifically those about the further status of Nagorno-Karabakh. The result of these talks cannot be solved in advance and unilaterally.
