The French Senate adopted, Friday, a resolution recognizing the independence of the Nagorno-Karabakh, taking into account the foreign policy, according to the Nezavisimaya Gazeta’s article.
Russian Gennady Petrov wrote, Friday, about pushing France’s president Emmanuel Macron to take more strict steps against Turkey, as it created a bitter resentment in French society with the policies of its President Erdogan.
The Senate Resolution is considered an example of a contradiction, as France precedes even the country with the greatest interest in recognizing Karabakh.
Armenian Prime Minister Nicole Pashinyan announced again, on the eve of the French Senate vote, his country's position on the Republic of Artsakh, stressing that in Yerevan they still do not recognize the independence of Nagorno-Karabakh.
Pashinyan believed that this issue must be resolved through negotiations within the Minsk Group of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, co-chaired by the United States of America, Russia and France.
On the other hand, Pashinyan announced, on Thursday evening, that he had a call with the Russian president Vladimir Putin twice during an hour, discussing the situation in Karabakh with him.
“I had a phone conversation with Russian Federation president Vladimir Putin twice in the last hour,” Pashinyan wrote on his Facebook Page, stated that they discussed “Issues related to the Lachin corridor settlements, missing people, searching jobs, dead bodies, fatal exchange process, peacekeepers location and border transport communications in the region.”
“Such discussions occur regularly, sometimes several times a day,” he added. “These discussions are not always spreading messages, considering their working nature and frequency.”
