"EASTERN PARTNERSHIP" PROJECT TO ASSIST KARABAKH PEACE PROCESS
Feb 18 2010
Though European Union is not directly involved in Nagorno-Karabakh
peace process, EU-launched "Eastern Partnership" project will assist
Azerbaijan to establish dialogue with its neighbors, which is essential
for settling any conflict, EU Ambassador to Azerbaijan Roland Kobia
stated on February 18.
"The best way of solving any conflict is the willingness to come to
the negotiating table with opponents. ‘Eastern Partnership’ project
contributes to this dialogue," Kobia emphasized. According to him, OSCE
Minsk Group does its utmost for the successful end of the conflict.
"EU does not have enough possibilities to intervene in the negotiation
process. However, we are ready to do more if we are asked," he said
adding that the union cannot impose its development model on the
country, insisting it is ideal.
"We just seek to share the gained experience," he concluded.
