Minsk Group format irreplaceable: French Ambassador

 

 

 

The OSCE Minsk Group remains irreplaceable as a mediator in the settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict, and the three co-chairing countries continue to work harmoniously with each other, French Ambassador to Armenia Jean-Fran├žois┬áCharpentier told a press conference today.

The Ambassador said the Minsk Group Co-Chairs are expected to visit the region next week.

As for the possibility of a Blitzkrieg, the Ambassador said such predictions are more of a speculation.

Jean-Fran├žois┬áCharpentier is optimistic about ArmeniaÔÇÖs European agenda. He sees no inconsistency between the Eurasian Economic Union and the European Union. As a proof, he reminded about the discussions at Riga Summit on the possibility of a new agreement between Armenia and the EU.

France also has new programs of cooperation with Armenia, the Ambassador said. This fall Yerevan will host a large Armenian-French business forum and a meeting of Ministers of Francophonie countries.
