NATO supports the process of normalization of relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan, NATO Secretary General’s Special Representative for the Caucasus and Central Asia Javier Colomina said in an interview with Armenpress, APA reports.

According to him, NATO insists that, at this stage, the principles agreed upon between the parties till the present moment should not be changed.

Recalling his visit to Armenia last week, the Secretary General’s Special Representative noted that they discussed the situation in the regional context and the peace talks with Azerbaijan: “As you know, our policy is very clear. We support the normalization of relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan. We do not take sides between our partners unless there is a violation of the principles and the main elements of the UN Charter that we are very attached to. Therefore, the message was very clear: We would like the peace talks to reconvene as soon as possible. We know there are different tracks, the bilateral track, the US track, and the EU track. For us, the most important thing is the outcome at the end, the lasting peace. Because that would be very important for the stability of the Caucasus. The normalization of relations that lead to a lasting peace is a fundamental element today and we will be pushing for that, supporting whatever tracks bring the two nations to sign something like that. We are supporting the US; we are supporting the European Union.”

Javier Colomina emphasized that NATO in the context of the Caucuses in general, has a political presence: “So, the three countries, Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan, but particularly in the context of Armenia and Azerbaijan. In addition, we have been always very clear about what we expect from our partners. We expect normalization of relations, based on agreed principles and some of those principles are principles that are enshrined in the Washington Treaty and the UN Charter, such as sovereignty and territorial integrity, and we will continue to support that same line and to continue to push for the normalization of relations."
