Nagorno-Karabakh: how to stop the fighting over the disputed region 

MEPs and Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell will debate EU reactions to recent clashes between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region.

The debate will focus on the renewed escalation of violence on the so-called “line of contact” between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region, which has, according to reports, yet again claimed the lives of both military personnel and civilians.

The area is internationally recognised as part of Azerbaijan but controlled by ethnic Armenians, who refer to the territory as the “Republic of Artsakh”.

Here is the latest statement by leading MEPs on the resumption of the hostilities.
