Baku. Elnur Mammadli – APA. Deputy chairman of New Azerbaijan Party (YAP) Ali Ahmadov said the European Union might participate in the solution to Nagorno Karabakh conflict. APA reports that Ali Ahmadov said in his interview to the party’s official website that EU being the most respected organization of the continent is interested in ensuring peace and security in this area.

Ali Ahmadov says that Azerbaijan is a part of Europe and considers that the conflicts in the South Caucasus, especially Nagorno Karabakh problem have direct influence on the security of Europe.
“The European Union has begun expressing openly that it is interested in the solution to Nagorno Karabakh conflict. A number of problems that emerged in Europe’s energy security recently have increased Azerbaijan’s role in this respect. I consider that the European Union has mechanisms to influence the settlement of the conflicts in the South Caucasus. It is obvious that the European Union has levers of influence on the process. But the question is how much the states are ready for restoration of justice. I think if the member states are interested in this, the conflict can be solved soon,” he said.
