To immediately impose sanctions against Azerbaijan and suspend the memorandum of understanding on strategic energy partnership.

To be prepared to impose targeted and individual sanctions against Azerbaijan's political and military leadership, suspend [Azerbaijani] oil and [natural] gas imports in the event of any military aggression by Azerbaijan against Armenia.

To strengthen the mandate of the EU [civilian monitoring] mission in Armenia, increase its size, extend its term, and deploy monitors on the [Armenian] border with Turkey.

To stop negotiations on a new partnership agreement with Azerbaijan."
