EP adopts CFSP, CSDP reports, which address situation around Artsakh  and Armenia amid Azeri aggression 

ArmInfo. The European Parliament adopted reports on the Common Foreign and Security Policy  (CFSP) and the Common Security and Defense Policy (CSDP), which address the situation around Artsakh and Armenia in connection with the aggression of Azerbaijan.

Thus, the CFSP final report notes: 

"The European Parliament, 

"Having regard to its resolutions of 15 March 2023 on EU-Armenia  relationsand EU-Azerbaijan relations, to its resolution of 19 January  2023 on the humanitarian consequences of the blockade in  Nagorno-Karabakh and to its resolution of 5 October 2023 on the  situation in Nagorno-Karabakh after Azerbaijan's attack and the  continuing threats against Armenia, whereas on 19 September 2023,  Azerbaijan launched an unprovoked military offensive against  Nagorno-Karabakh, which ended in an imposed ceasefire between  Azerbaijan and the authorities of Nagorno-Karabakh; whereas the  renewed hostilities in the South Caucasus are a cause for serious  concern and require more proactive EU involvement in the region;

"Condemns, in the strongest terms, the pre-planned and unjustified  attack by Azerbaijan against the Armenians of Nagorno-Karabakh and  the people who have remained in the region; calls on the Azerbaijani  authorities to allow the safe return of the Armenian population to  Nagorno-Karabakh and to offer solid guarantees regarding the  protection of their rights; demands the protection of the Armenian  cultural, historical and religious heritage in Nagorno-Karabakh in  line with UNESCO standards and Azerbaijan's international  commitments; deplores the fact that Baku's offensive represented a  gross violation of international law and human rights and a clear  infringement of the trilateral ceasefire statement of 9 November 2020  and of the commitments that Azerbaijan made in the negotiations  mediated by the EU; believes that genuine dialogue between Azerbaijan  and Armenia is the only sustainable way forward and calls for the EU  and its Member States to support such efforts; supports the ongoing  peace talks between Armenia and Azerbaijan, which have been seriously  hampered by the recent military operation against Nagorno-Karabakh  and the de facto ethnic cleansing; highlights that a dignified and  durable regional peace that maintains sovereignty, independence and  territorial integrity for both countries is a prerequisite for  stability in the neighbourhood;"

"71. Calls on the EU civilian mission in Armenia (EUMA) to closely  monitor the evolving security situation on the ground, provide  transparent reporting to Parliament and actively contribute to  conflict resolution efforts; calls for the EU and its Member States  to strengthen EUMA's mandate, increase its size, extend its duration  and also place monitors along the border with T rkiye; calls on  Azerbaijan to allow EUMA's presence on its side of the border and in  Nagorno-Karabakh;" "72. Calls on the VP/HR and the EEAS to further  support Armenia via the European Peace Facility, in particular with a  view to strengthening its defence capabilities against hybrid threats  in order to enlarge its security space beyond the Collective Security  Treaty Organization; welcomes the establishment of the EU-Armenia  Political and Security Dialogue and its first meeting on 26 January  2023;"

"73. Stresses that Parliament's multiple warnings about the situation  have not led to any change in the EU's policy regarding Azerbaijan;  insists that any deepening of EU relations with Azerbaijan must  remain conditional on the country making substantial progress on  respect for human rights, the rule of law, democracy and fundamental  freedoms, including the protection of ethnic minorities; further  calls on the EU to immediately impose sanctions on Azerbaijan and to  suspend the Memorandum of Understanding on a Strategic Partnership in  the Field of Energy;"

"74. Reiterates its support for the democratically elected government  of Armenia and its full respect of the country's sovereignty,  democracy and territorial integrity; praises Prime Minister Nikol  Pashinyan's declaration that Armenia will not be dragged into a new  war with Azerbaijan and his recent calls for the resumption of peace  talks at the highest level with Azerbaijan; condemns Russian's  interference in Armenia, which are aimed at spreading unrest; calls  for the EU to strengthen its engagement in the South Caucasus;  welcomes Armenia's decision to ratify the Rome Statute of the  International Criminal Court;"
