“France will never recognize the so-called” Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.” Not only France, but no country in the world also recognizes it.
Because the norms of international law are violated, the territories of Azerbaijan are occupied. Today, 75-80 percent of the so-called “Nagorno-Karabakh Republic” is funded by Armenia. “
Head of the Center for Strategic Analysis and Geopolitical Studies in Paris, Naim Asas told Report’s French bureau.
According to him, currently presiding in the UN Security Council, France does not declare the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict as a priority subject, but this does not mean a change in the country’s position: “France is extremely cautious regarding the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. The matter related to the Nagorno-Karabakh is of international importance, so France does not act singly on this point. But France has not forgotten about the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. In particular, the government does not plan to retreat when it comes to international law. The occupation of the Azerbaijani lands by Armenia is a problem of international law. “
N. Asas also expressed his attitude that in France, some mayors are trying to build cooperation with the separatist regime in Nagorno-Karabakh: “Local governments, city hall, departments have wide powers. Nevertheless, the government does not allow them to sign the so-called “friendly charters with the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic,” which demonstrates the firm and unchanging position of France on the Karabakh case.”
