The Spanish Congress has accepted another proposal-motion by MP Jon Inarritu, in which the Congress expresses its condolences to the families of the civilian and military casualties of the recent Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) Nagorno-Karabakh war.
As reported by Armenpress, the embassy of Armenia in Spain informs that this proposal-mediation also reaffirms Spain’s deep friendly ties with the Armenian people; underscores the protection of the Armenian cultural and religious centers in the territories under the control of Azerbaijan, or to pass under its control; if necessary, to increase the EU humanitarian aid to the people of Nagorno-Karabakh; as well as the return of internally displaced persons and refugees to their homes.
It is noted that none of the political forces represented in the Spanish Congress voted against the abovementioned proposal-mediation.
On November 9, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, and Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a joint statement on a complete cessation of hostilities— which Azerbaijan had launched on September 27—in and around Artsakh. Accordingly, Russian peacekeepers are deployed in the region to monitor the implementation of the ceasefire and the cessation of hostilities. But this statement also stipulates the handover of part of Artsakh lands to Azerbaijan.
