ArmInfo. Ankara and Baku attacked France for the resolution on Nagorno-Karabakh.
Thus, Turkish President Recep Tayyip criticized the decision of the French National Assembly on Nagorno-Karabakh, stating that Paris lost all confidence as a mediator on Nagorno-Karabakh.
The Turkish President supported "the initiative of the Azerbaijani leader Ilham Aliyev, who had proposed earlier to France to transfer Marseille to the Armenians to create a second Armenian state."
Although, instead of giving advice to Paris, Erdogan should study the history of his country, which, having committed the genocide of the Armenian people, seized the territory of Western Armenia
This issue was also commented on by speaker of the Turkish parliament, Mustafa Shentop, who assured that the parliament that makes the decision on the recognition of Nagorno-Karabakh, which has not been done by any state in the world, including Armenia, "lives in fairy tales."
"If state recognition is considered such an easy process, then exclusion from the category of states should be just as simple. The French National Assembly has lost its status as a serious opponent>, said the speaker of the Turkish parliament, assuring that despite all the fuss unleashed by France in the international arena, the "efficiency" of Paris as a global player is rapidly declining.
In turn, Azerbaijan summoned French Ambassador to Azerbaijan to the country's Foreign Ministry. On the eve of the National Assembly (the lower house of the French parliament) adopted a resolution that calls on the French government to recognize Nagorno-Karabakh to ensure the safety of its population.
A few days ago, the same resolution was adopted by the French Senate (upper house of parliament). In both cases, the French Foreign Ministry stated that the recognition of Nagorno-Karabakh would not help the negotiation process: Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs of France Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne stated this in the Senate, and Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves Le Drian in the National Assembly. After that, the French Ambassador to Azerbaijan made a note on his Twitter: "One thing should be clear: France recognizes the independence of its parliament, but not Nagorno-Karabakh."
