 Unlike Azerbaijan, Armenia has been consistently proving its adherence to the principles of international law, in particular, non-use of force, peoples' right for self-determination and territorial integrity principle, Armenia's Foreign Minister, Edward Nalbandian, said at the meeting of foreign ministers of the EU Eastern Partnership countries, in Brussels on 22 July. 

He expressed regret for non-availability of the political will in Azerbaijan, reflected in declining of all the proposals made by the intermediaries. "We fully agree to the necessity of preparing the peoples to peace. Unfortunately, Azerbaijan goes the opposite way, coming forward with militaristic and provocative statements, propagating intolerance and hatred. This results in raising of tension and worsening of the situation at the line of contact with Karabakh and at the border to Armenia. We highly appreciate assistance of the European Union and the efforts of the OSCE Minsk Group directed only at peaceful resolving of the Karabakh conflict", - Nalbandian said. 

To note, Catherine Ashton, the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy for the European Union, and Stepan Fule, the European Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighbourhood Policy, took part in the meeting.
