PanARMENIAN.Net - Belgium Ambassador to Azerbaijan commented on EU efforts in contributing to Karabakh conflict settlement.
“The Nagorno-Karabakh issue is followed by us with a lot of attention. It is a complicated, tragic story and after being here for almost two years, I see also that progress is not easy,” Luc Truyens told APA.
“This does not mean that we have to lose hope and diminish our efforts. To the contrary, we have to strengthen our diplomatic efforts. Another solution, violence, is something absolutely to be avoided,” he said.
“I am happy that not only the OSCE Minsk Group is very serious about bringing a solution closer to us. The EU is ready to step up engagement in this area, namely in the framework of the activities of the EU SR for the South Caucasus and the Crisis in Georgia, Ambassador Lefort, and to promote steps that contribute to a peaceful resolution of the conflict, in support of and in full complementarity with the Minsk Group. And I am confident that a solution will be reached,” the envoy said.
