EU Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighborhood Policy
Stefan Fule considers it necessary to attract the international community to the reconstruction of conflict zones in the South Caucasus.
"There is a need for the union to lead the international efforts for rehabilitation and reconstruction in this conflict area by initiating reconciliation projects, people-to-people programs and contacts, and by sending a mission to the region once a political solution is found," Fule said speaking before the European Parliament in Strasbourg, the Freedom radio reported.
He said the European Commission, is carrying out consultations with the member states, as well as the European Parliament, to see if it has in place "the right tools and allocations, and if it's going in the right direction."
"The commitment of our South Caucasus partners to approximation with Europe needs to be translated into further progress towards democracy, market economy, and political stability on the ground," Fule said.
Fule called on Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia to move forward in their efforts towards modern, inclusive, pluralistic, democratic, and prosperous society; at peace with their neighbors.
