Swiss Ambassador to Armenia Lukas Gasser: Switzerland will try to contribute to a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict without questioning the established formats such as the OSCE Minsk process
by Marianna Mkrtchyan
Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian and Co-Chairman of the Commission for Armenia-EU Parliamentary Cooperation Milan Cabrnoch have discussed the European Parliament's Resolution on European Neighborhood. Samvel Farmanyan, Armenian Co-Chairman of the Commission, was also present at the meeting.
The press service of the Armenian Foreign Ministry has told ArmInfo that Nalbandian stressed the importance of further development and promotion of relations with the EU and gave high priority to the inter-parliamentary cooperation.
Nalbandian stressed that the formulations about Nagorno-Karabakh in the European Parliament's Resolution on European Neighborhood run counter to the official stance of the European Union and to the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs' approach.
He added that the authors of such formulations should realize that they are responsible for the possible negative impact on the peace process and for hindering the Co-Chairs' efforts aimed at peaceful settlement of the conflict.
