The EAFJD delegates passed to the President of MR a letter on Charles Michel’s statement in the aftermath of the trilateral meeting with Nikol Pashinyan and Ilham Aliyev (23 May 2022). The letter is a pan-European initiative by the EAFJD co-signed by more than 90 organizations across the EU. Karampetian and Evinyan elaborated inter alia
- on the ongoing Azerbaijani policy of ethnic cleansing against the indigenous Armenian population of Nagorno Karabakh/Artsakh
- the necessity to mediate for a just and viable peace and not impose an outcome on the Armenian side which has been a victim of authoritarian regimes such as Azerbaijan and Turkey
- the importance of duly considering the right of the native Armenian population to decide their future in their own homeland as well as their right to live in peace and safety.
