YEREVAN, October 7 (Itar-Tass) — French President Nicolas Sarkozy on Friday urged Armenia and Azerbaijan to resume negotiations on the settlement in the mostly Armenian populated Azerbaijani enclave of Nagorno Karabakh.
“These are political negotiations with neighbours for the sake of the establishment of a lasting peace,” the French president said at the end of his state visit to Yerevan.
“The sooner negotiations between Armenia and Azerbaijan resume, the better,” as “immobility will lead to war,” Sarkozy said. According to him, there is the only way out – “the renewal of discussions between Azerbaijanis and Armenians under the aegis of the Minsk Group”.
France together with Russia and the USA is one of co-chairmen of that OSCE group. “You both equally need this peace,” the French leader said, referring to Armenia and Azerbaijan.
