Ville de Decines-Charpieu, a French sister city of Chartar, Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), has adopted a resolution on the situation in Artsakh, the latter’s foreign ministry informed on Facebook.
"The city council of Decines-Charpieu expresses the following appeal: Recognition of the Artsakh Republic by France as a guarantee of security of its population, regional and global stability; participation in the wave of international humanitarian aid by providing outstanding financial assistance to the Artsakh Republic," the resolution reads in particular.
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.
