We won’t recognize Independence of Republic of Artsakh – French Foreign Ministry

we wont recognize independence of republic of artsakh french foreign ministry

France is not recognizing the independence of the self-proclaimed Republic of Artsakh, which controls a part of Azerbaijan’s Nagorno-Karabakh region, despite the relevant resolution of the national Senate, a spokesperson for the French Foreign Ministry stated.

The French Senate on Wednesday reached a resolution by an absolute majority of votes calling on the country’s government to recognize the Republic of Artsakh. The document, which is advisory in nature, has been hailed both by Armenia and the Republic of Artsakh but faced strong criticism from Azerbaijan.

“During the debates held before the voting [in the Senate], State Secretary for Tourism, the French Abroad and the Francophonie Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne reiterated the French stance on this issue:

France is not recognizing the self-proclaimed Republic of Artsakh,”  the spokesperson said on late Thursday.

“Today, we must focus on ensuring the safe return of displaced people, who had to leave their homes within the recent weeks over the conflict. The state secretary also stressed in his address to the Senate that no nations had recognized Nagorno-Karabakh so far,” the spokesperson added.
