The French ministry of foreign affairs has commented on the statement made by the Azerbaijani president Ilham Aliyev during the conference of New Azerbaijan Party on February 8.

In answer to the question on the position of France on statements which not only contradict the OSCE Minsk Group but also threaten the existence of Armenia, the French foreign ministry, according to Armenpress, said: “France continues to fully participate in seeking for a settlement of the Karabakh conflict through negotiations. We call on the conflict sides to work diligently in this direction, particularly refraining from statements and actions that may cause escalation.”
