YEREVAN, OCTOBER 15, ARMENPRESS. The Paris City Council adopted unanimously a decision on October 14 to name one of the central parts of the city – the part located between the Pont de l'Alma and the Pont des Invalides bridges, near the Seine River, after Armenia.

The part of the city was named “Esplanade d'Arménie”, the French Embassy in Armenia said in a statement.

“An important decision, once again reaffirming the true friendship between Paris and Armenia and the firmness of the Armenian-French unique relations. The Esplanade d'Arménie will be included in the official register of the Paris addresses and will involve in its large space also the Komitas monument which opened in back in 2004 and the Yerevan Park opened in 2009. We would like to thank the Paris City Council led by Mayor Anne Hidalgo for this important initiative and the decision adopted, as well as deputy mayor Arnaud Ngatcha for authoring the draft decision”, the Embassy’s statement says.

The Armenian Ambassador to France also attended the session of the City Council dedicated to the adoption of this decision.

YEREVAN, OCTOBER 15, ARMENPRESS. Armenia’s foreign ministry issued a statement today, strongly condemning yesterday’s gross violation by the Azerbaijani armed forces of the ceasefire in Artsakh established by the 2020 November 9 trilateral statement.

The statement says:

“We strongly condemn the gross violation by the Azerbaijani armed forces of the ceasefire regime on October 14, which was established by the November 9 trilateral statement, as a result of which 6 servicemen of the Defense Army of Artsakh were wounded near the village of Norshen of Artsakh. The Azerbaijani side continued violating the ceasefire also today, on October 15, by opening fire at a medical ambulance of the Defense Army in the north-eastern section.

We record that this is the second serious incident of the ceasefire violation by the Azerbaijani side within a week, as a result of which civilians and servicemen suffer.

Let us remind that on October 9 civilian Aram Tepnants was killed from a sniper fire while he was carrying out farming works near Martakert town. The respective statement of the Armenian Foreign Ministry has clearly emphasized the necessity of properly investigating this crime and holding the guilty ones accountable.

We attach importance to the implementation of the necessary actions with the mediation of the Russian peacekeeping forces aimed at the unconditional observance of the ceasefire regime and the prevention of such incidents in the future”.

YEREVAN, OCTOBER 15, ARMENPRESS. Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan says it’s possible to change the current situation in the region in case of a political will by achieving stability and peace.

In his remarks during today’s online session of the CIS Council of Heads of State, Pashinyan stated that thanks to Russia’s efforts the military operations stopped in Nagorno Karabakh on November 9, 2020. He stated that according to the trilateral statement signed on November 9, Russian peacekeepers were deployed in Nagorno Karabakh, ensuring security.

“Russia and Vladimir Putin personally played a vital role in the stop of the 44-day war. Today as well they play a vital role in the maintenance of peace in the region. We thank them for all these efforts”, Pashinyan said.

The Armenian PM said that the region is on the verge of transformations and in case of a political will the current picture can change, bringing peace and stability.

“We are ready for those changes. Moreover, it is in accordance with the vision of our government. One of the goals of the government is to open an era of peace. There are factors which question the process of achieving peace in our region. Despite all political efforts, people continue to be killed in Nagorno Karabakh, on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border. On this occasion I propose to strengthen the trilateral mechanisms for investigating the incidents and observing the ceasefire regime. Many not only do not believe, but also they do not want peace and stability in our country, and in such circumstances it’s very hard to move forward the peace agenda. We are determined and will do everything for the establishment of peace and stability in our region. We have a clear vision how to achieve this goal, that is the dialogue and the gradual overcoming of the hostile environment, which, unfortunately, exists in our region, and then the unblocking of transportation and economic communications, this is the only way that will lead to that goal”, Nikol Pashinyan said.

In this context he emphasized the importance of the implementation of all those agreements reached by the 2020 November 9 and the 2021 January 11 trilateral statements.

Pashinyan also informed the session participants that works are underway within the Russian-Armenia-Azerbaijan deputy prime ministerial working group on the re-opening of all transportation communications. He expressed hope to achieve concrete results in the nearest future, which, he added, means that Armenia will have an automobile and railway communication with Russia, a railway communication with Iran, and Azerbaijan will have a railway communication with Nakhijevan via the territory of Armenia.
