Borrell Says EU Supports Possible Peace Agreement Between Azerbaijan and Armenia

Top EU official said they strongly support any possible deal between Azerbaijan and Armenia, as the two neighboring countries have been engaged in deadly conflict over the status of the Nagorno-Karabakh region.

“We would appreciate a lot if peace agreement is reached between Azerbaijan and Armenia,” the European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Joseph Borrell said.

Borrell said that the EU has been engaged with the two parties in order for them to really look for “this agreement with the best will.”

“We are far away from that yet. But if this happens, the European Union will provide any help that we can in order to support the implementation of the agreement,” Borrell said.

Armenia and Azerbaijani have been engaged in brutal clashes since 1991 when the Armenian military occupied Nagorno-Karabakh, a territory recognized internationally as part of Azerbaijan, but the ethnic Armenians make up most of the population.

Several deadly clashes have happened since then, in which both sides suffered casualties.
