YEREVAN.- EU opposes isolation of the Nagorno-Karabakh, said EU Special Representative for the South Caucasus and the Crisis in Georgia Philippe Lefort.
The envoy believes communication is better than isolation and it is wrong to put preconditions for visiting the region. Lefort recalled that he, unlike Co-Chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, has no mandate to visit Nagorno-Karabakh. His trip depends on “good will of the sides”.
“We are working on it,” the EU official stressed saying he wants to visit Karabakh but has no idea when it can become possible.
All visits by foreign delegations are painfully perceived by Azerbaijan. Those who dare travel to Nagorno-Karabakh are immediately included in the blacklist by official Baku.
