Armenia's Great Losses due to Unsettlement of Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict are Obvious European Union Special Representative
Peter Semneby, the European Union (EU) Special Representative for South Caucasus, stated that this year Armenia and Azerbaijan lost a great opportunity to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Trend reports citing Armenian News Agency Mediamax
If I would have to speak about my disappointment in the first half-year as a European Union Special Representative in the South Caucasus, I would definitely remember the inability of Armenia and Azerbaijan to reach an agreement to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, he said. A very important opportunity has been lost, Semneby stated.
At present I am not very optimistic. Whilst I do not wish to accuse either side, Armenia and Azerbaijan should think of the threats and losses that the unresolved conflict has brought about. In the case of Armenia, the great losses are obvious. The relative isolation of Armenia is a direct result of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Semneby stressed.
I hope that finally the leaders and the people of Armenia will come to the conclusion that it is more profitable for Armenia to resolve the conflict irrespective of how much it will cost them, Semneby said.
