BRUSSELS, June 21 (Itar-Tass) - Stability in the North Caucasus cannot be ensured without the Karabakh settlement, EU Council President Herman Van Rompuy said.

At the meeting with Azerbaijani President Ilkham Aliyev on Friday, Van Rompuy said the European Union backed the efforts taken by the OSCE Minsk Group and its principles of the settlement of the conflict - the renunciation of use of force, the observance of territorial integrity and the rights of ethnic minorities.

Aliyev said, “The principle of self-determination of nations cannot run counter the states’ territorial integrity.”

The meeting also focused on democratic reforms and Azerbaijan’s participation in the Eastern Partnership, which was set up to allow former USSR republics to take part in the EU structures.

Presidential elections in Azerbaijan due to take place in October will be the indicator of democratic reforms in the republic, Van Rompuy said.
