The European Union (EU) has taken note of the reports about the cessation of hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh and is closely following the development of the situation. Peter Stano, Lead Spokesperson for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy of the EU European Commission, announced this at Wednesday’s press conference in Brussels.
Stano said they have acknowledged that an agreement on a ceasefire has been reached, and they expect that Azerbaijan will stop hostilities.
According to Stano, it is important that Azerbaijan does not use the fighting as an excuse for the forced removal of Armenians from Nagorno-Karabakh.
The EU is closely monitoring the situation, and the member countries will decide on the future courses of action as the situation develops, the European Commission official added.
The two parties on Wednesday announced that, through the mediation of the command of the Russian peacekeepers in Nagorno Karabakh, an agreement was reached to stop the military operations as of noon Moscow time, as well as to completely disarm the Nagorno Karabakh armed units.
And on Thursday, a meeting between Azerbaijan and the representatives of the Armenian population of Karabakh will take place in Yevlakh, Azerbaijan, on the topic of "reintegration on the basis of the constitution and laws of Azerbaijan."
