French Co Chair of OSCE Minsk Group Visits Armenian Parliament

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–The newly appointed French co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group–Philippe de Suremain–requested a visit to the Armenian Parliament while visiting Yerevan with the other co-chairs of the group. The French diplomat visited the parliament on Tuesday–where he met with Speaker Armen Khachatrian and other members of parliament.

Khachatrian reminded the OSCE representative of the joint statement released by all 11 factions and non-partisan groups of the parliament on April 27. The unanimous decision described a peace accord that would not lead to Karabakh’s reunification with Armenia or international affirmation of its independent status as unacceptable. The statement also found unacceptable negotiations on Armenia’s territory at the expense of the country’s territorial integrity and sovereignty.
