French-Armenian cultural figures have addressed French Minister of Europe and Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves Le Drian in connection with the tragic situation in Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh). It is incomprehensible to them that the French FM is silent in this regard, Inosmi reported, citing Marianne weekly.
"You have limited yourself to a laconic response to the call of the entire Armenian community and MPs of France to recognize Artsakh's independence. These words said reluctantly indicate France's ‘neutrality.’
You did not offer any proposals or ideas that would show your concern over the Turkish-Azerbaijani coalition’s aggression against Artsakh. You have never condemned that massive, brutal, and total aggression.
Your ‘neutrality’ is absolutely logical.
You are narrowing the diplomatic field for the interest of economic and financial pragmatism.
You present Azerbaijan as a democracy, whereas there is an autocratic dictatorship [there]," reads, in particular, the letter which the French-Armenian cultural figures have addressed to French FM Le Drian.
