In an interview with Report, French Ambassador to Azerbaijan Zacharie Gross commented on the French Senate's adoption of the draft resolution on Nagorno-Karabakh.
-How could you comment on the Senate's recent decision, which contradicts the position of the Foreign Ministry of France?
- French Government Minister Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne stated the Government's view on the Senate resolution. The French Government's position has not changed. France has not recognized the Republic of Nagorny Karabakh.
-How can this impact the post-conflict phase of the Nagorno Karabakh resolution?
- As Minister Le Moyne said, the Senate's decision will not have any impact on Nagorno Karabakh.
-France is the OSCE Minsk Group co-chair country. Does this Senate resolution call into question the neutrality and balance of France's position as a mediator?
- No. The resolution does not change France's position. The French Government remains committed to an impartial and balanced approach to Nagorno Karabakh resolution.
