Only political dialogue can lead to a sustainable settlement of Armenian-Azerbaijani relations - Charles  Michel 

ArmInfo.Prolonged conflicts remain a fundamental challenge in the European Partnership region, President of the European Council Charles Michel stated in his video message at the 13th Annual Assembly of the European Partnership Civil  Society Forum.  

They require renewed efforts in line with the  principles and norms of international law. The EU stands ready to  play its role to help prevent and resolve conflict. This includes  building confidence and contributing to lasting and comprehensive  settlements - including support for post-conflict rehabilitation  measures, he said. 

"The relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan show the fragility of  the situation. I am totally convinced that only political dialogue  can lead to a sustainable settlement. It will also require civil  society in Armenia and Azerbaijan to come together, to build bridges  and to help in reconciliation efforts," Mr Michel said.  The 13th  Annual Assembly "Road to recovery: fostering reform and resilience  for a stronger Eastern Partnership" will be held online from 30  November to 2 December 2021, bringing together more than 300 CSOs and  EaP and EU decision-makers to discuss the last steps and challenges  ahead of the 6th Eastern Partnership Summit (15-16 December 2021), as  well as the ambitions and policy objectives set out in the new policy  documents.

The road to successful recovery from the several unprecedented crises  that have continued to grip the region in the course of 2021 has to  be just, inclusive and in line with the core values that are at the  basis of the Eastern Partnership. Building on messages from civil  society voiced in the run-up to the EaP Summit, the debate on how  best to put into practice the new EaP agenda, new single financial  instrument 'Global Europe - NDICI' and new EaP architecture, in order  to foster reform and resilience, will focus on security challenges,  accountability as well as meaningful civil society involvement.

The 2021 Annual Assembly will also conclude the work of the delegates  of the first two-year cycle of the Forum's history and take stock of  the fitness of the EaP CSF WGs for the new EaP policy and updated  multilateral architecture. The event will also provide a space to  discuss the Forum's draft Strategy for 2022- 2030 and prepare the  ground for its validation and adoption, reports the official website  of the the European Partnership Civil Society Forum.
