France’s Ambassador to Baku Zakari Gros has been called to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan in regard to the resolution on Nagorno-Karabakh that was adopted by the French Senate yesterday.
“A note of protest was delivered to the Ambassador in regard to the adoption by the French Senate of a resolution “on the need for recognition of the independence of Nagorno-Karabakh”,” the press release of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan reads. The ministry states that the Ambassador has promised to express Baku’s position to the French government.
Yesterday the French Senate adopted a resolution calling on the government to recognize the independence of Nagorno-Karabakh (305 senators voted in favor, 1 voted against). Analysts explained that this resolution is advisory and not binding for the government. In its turn, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan viewed the resolution as a provocation and stated that it has no legal force.
