Pedro Agramunt: Europe must resolve Karabakh conflict

Pedro Agramunt: Europe must resolve Karabakh conflict



The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the conflicts in Ukraine and Georgia are absolutely unacceptable, says the President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) Pedro Agramunt.

Addressing the opening of the PACE autumn session on Oct. 10, Agramunt said Europe must resolve all these conflicts on the basis of parliamentary diplomacy.

The PACE autumn session kicked off on Oct. 10 and will end on Oct. 14.

The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts. The 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations. Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
