Armenia`s premier on Granada meeting results: statements cemented  common view of regional peace

Armenia`s premier on Granada meeting results: statements cemented  common view of regional peace

ArmInfo. The meeting in Granada resulted in two important statements. The first statement was  between the leaders of France, Germany Armenia and the president of the European Council. The second statement was made jointly with President of the European Commission Ursula Gertrud von der Leyen.  The statements demonstrated the EU's consensus on deepening relations with Armenia, Armenia's Premier Nikol Pashinyan said in an interview with Armenia's Public TV. 

The statements also cemented the common view of Armenia and the EU of  the grounds for regional peace.  In this vein, the Prime Minister  mentioned, first of all, the mutual recognition of each other's  territorial integrity by Armenia and Azerbaijan, indicating the size  of the territories, the process of border delimitation on the basis  of the Alma-Ata Declaration of 1991, and according to the maps of the  USSR issued to the parties in recent years, the unblockade of  regional communications in conditions of full protection of the  sovereignty of countries.

The Prime Minister said that the signed statements also condemn the  use of force against Nagorno- Karabakh, the forced displacement of  the Artsakh people, and also expressed the readiness of the EU and  the United States to support Armenia in managing the humanitarian  situation, the readiness of the EU to deepen relations with Armenia  as much as Armenia wants and the right of the Armenians of Nagorno-  Karabakh to return to their homeland without preconditions is  established, and this right must be protected.  Pashinyan noted that  the statement also called for the release of prisoners of war and all  detainees, and the parties also touched upon the issue of missing  persons.

He cited the absence of a signature in the statements of the leader  of the Azerbaijani state as a gap. "If there was a signature, I would  say that the probability that we will sign a peace treaty with  Azerbaijan by the end of the year is above 70%," the head of  government said.

When asked whether the signing of statements in Granada will affect  the withdrawal of Azerbaijani troops from the sovereign territory of  Armenia, Pashinyan noted that this issue is being considered in the  context of the above points. In particular, he emphasized that the  delimitation process will eliminate all border violations. "But the  problem is that these statements do not have Azerbaijan's signature.  But, at least, an official understanding has formed in the West of  what exactly should be the basis for a future peaceful settlement,"  Mr Pashinyan said.
