EU Special Representative for South Caucasus to visit Baku
- 18 November 2017
Toivo Klaar, EU Special Representative for the South Caucasus and the Crisis in Georgia, is planning to visit Baku in the coming weeks, an EU spokesperson said in a statement to APA.
According to the statement, the new Mr Toivo Klaar is planning to visit the three capitals in the weeks to come. He will start with Georgia by taking part in preparatory consultations of the Co Chairs of the Geneva International Discussions in the course of next week, ahead of the next round scheduled for mid-December.
Asked what contributions the newly appointed special representative could make to the efforts to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the spokesperson gave the following answer.
“The unresolved Nagorno-Karabakh conflict remains an obstacle to stability and prosperity in the region. The Presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan have repeatedly committed to the ceasefire and the peaceful settlement of this conflict. The EU, including through its Special Representative for the South Caucasus and the crisis in Georgia, supports and complements the efforts of the Co-Chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group to facilitate the resolution of the conflict. The EU also promotes confidence- and peace-building activities across the conflict divide, notably through the implementation of the programme European Partnership for the peaceful settlement of the conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh (EPNK).”
