Pashinyan and Macron Meet in Brussels and Discuss Armenia-Azerbaijan Relations

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and French President Emmanuel Macron held crucial discussions at the inaugural Nuclear Energy Summit held in Brussels, Belgium. The summit, a platform for international cooperation on nuclear energy, provided an opportune moment for the leaders to address pressing regional matters, particularly the relationship between Armenia and Azerbaijan.


During their meeting, Pashinyan and Macron spoke about the significance of the high-level political dialogue between Armenia and France. Both leaders expressed a firm commitment to bolstering their collaboration across various sectors, highlighting the importance of enhancing bilateral ties.


A significant portion of their discussions centered around the steps necessary to normalize relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan. The longstanding conflict between the two nations, rooted in Azerbaijan’s territorial occupation over the Nagorno-Karabakh region, has strained relations for decades. Pashinyan and Macron deliberated on potential pathways to de-escalate tensions and foster a peaceful resolution to the conflict.


Moreover, the leaders delved into the broader geopolitical landscape of the South Caucasus region. With ongoing developments shaping the political and security dynamics in the area, Pashinyan and Macron exchanged views on the evolving situation and explored avenues for regional stability and cooperation.


In addition to bilateral and regional concerns, the meeting also addressed the prospect of deepening cooperation between Armenia and the European Union (EU). Both Pashinyan and Macron acknowledged the significance of strengthening Armenia's ties with the EU and discussed strategies for furthering collaboration across various domains.
