French President Emmanuel Macron has sent a congratulatory message to President Armen Sarkissian on the occasion of Armenia's Independence Day anniversary.
"France and Armenia can be proud of [their] rich relations based on historical ties, shared memory, and single vision.
I want to assure you that France is determined to support Armenia in the courageous work of change undertaken by the government of Armenia since 2018.
More than ever, all actors in our bilateral relations are ready to support the reforms and participate in economic growth.
I would like to take this opportunity to emphasize that France, as a Co-Chair of the [OSCE] Minsk Group, will spare no effort to achieve a speedy resumption of talks between the parties—in the hope of a peaceful and lasting settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict," Macron’s message reads, in particular.
