French party leader speaks on his visit to Karabakh and Artsakh independence resolution

French opposition Socialist Party leader Olivier Faure announced his intention to leave for Nagorno-Karabakh, RFI reported.

Last Friday, the leadership of the party adopted a declaration on sending a delegation to the region from 6 to 9 December.

According to him, they will meet with the Artsakh president and Armenian authorities in Yerevan.

The group will also visit the refugee camp.

He also recalled that his party was the first to adopt a resolution on the need to recognize the independence of the Nagorno-Karabakh a few days ago. It was followed by the Senators’ Resolution, and there is also a new resolution, initiated by the right-wing Republicans, which is being discussed in the National Assembly this week.

Faure said the French government did not take on the necessary share of responsibility in the issue of resolving the Karabakh crisis.
