Baku – APA. “The European Union supports a peaceful resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict on the basis of the principles of non-use of force, territorial integrity and the self-determination of peoples”, said President of the European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso after his meeting with Armenian prime minister Tigran Sargsyan, APA reports quoting “Armenia Today”: “The status quo of Nagorno Karabakh conflict is not an option. We remain seriously concerned about continuing armed incidents at the line of contact in Nagorno-Karabakh and the ongoing militarization in the region. The persistence of this conflict remains a major impediment to development in the region. The European Union lends its full support to the OSCE Minsk Group and will continue to promote regional cooperation and good neighborly relations through the multilateral track of the Eastern Partnership. Finally, let me say that the European Union continues to support the Armenian-Turkish normalization strongly. We encourage both countries to stay committed to this historical process. I am confident that there will be new possibilities for dialogue in the future”.
