France recognizes the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan”, said Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of France Pascal Meunier commenting on the protest of the representatives of Karabakh Liberation Organization at the presentation ceremony of the joint project by Institute for Peace and Democracy in Azerbaijan and Armenian "Region" Research Center.

The Ambassador said that he shares the feelings of the victims of this war, as well as war veterans attending the meeting. Meunier noted that he came to Baku and visited the Alley of Martyrs with his Azerbaijani friend before taking office as an ambassador in Azerbaijan: “I am aware of this event. I would like to say that the international community recognizes the sovereignty of Azerbaijan. It also includes the occupied Azerbaijani territories. We believe that the way out of the present deadlock is a peace. In my opinion, peace can be achieved more quickly, if the people suffering the same problem associate.”

The ambassador said the reduction of hatred depended on the continuation of joint projects: “If the hatred reduces, the peace can be achieved. I know these two people had close relations. My grandfather and father participated in the war against Germany and sister is s teacher of the German language. I want to say all wars end with peace. Simply, we must think about the post-peace period.”
