Pashinyan, Charles Michel attach importance to forthcoming joint meeting with French, German and Azeri leaders




YEREVAN, MAY 14, ARMENPRESS. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and President of the European Council Charles Michel discussed the “military-political and humanitarian situation in the region” during an informal meeting in Brussels Saturday evening.

PM Pashinyan spoke about the situation resulting from the latest “provocative and aggressive” actions of the Azerbaijani military against Armenia’s sovereign territory, which “are aimed at disrupting the efforts for resuming the peace talks,” the Prime Minister’s Office said in a readout.

Pashinyan and Michel also discussed issues related to the humanitarian crisis in Nagorno Karabakh resulting from the illegal blockade of Lachin Corridor by Azerbaijan, as well as the normalization process between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

The Armenian Prime Minister and the European Council President also discussed the upcoming May 14 trilateral meeting with participation of the Azerbaijani President and attached importance to holding a five-sided meeting together with French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz in Chisinau on June 1, within the framework of the European Political Community Summit.
