At the request of the French President and the Minister of Europe and Foreign Affairs, France is making coordinated efforts to assist the Armenian population affected by the Nagorno-Karabakh [(Artsakh)] conflict; French Ambassador to Armenia Jonathan Lacote wrote about this on Facebook.
“(…) this event mobilizes the state, solidarity associations collaborating with Armenia, the humanitarian organizations, business foundations, and hospitals united within the framework of Coordination Sud. (…).
This operating humanitarian aid system is responding to the emergency situation caused as a result of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict in recent weeks.
France, as a co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group, also remains fully mobilized with Russia and the US to achieve a lasting solution to this conflict," Ambassador Lacote added 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.
