European Union

The resolution adopted by the French Senate is a blow to the peace process


Azerbaijan is taking a firm stand on all platforms. It uses a multi-vector foreign strategy in this direction to protect its position and declare the new realities.

Azerbaijan’s important foreign policy direction is not related in any way to the size or greatness of any country but rather to its place in the new world political architecture.

The year 2020 (i.e. Azerbaijan’s Second Karabakh War ushered in new realities for the South Caucasus. Our country’s great victory demonstrated the multi-year activities of the United Nations on international platforms. It also ensured that the four adopted resolutions were implemented. Azerbaijan created a new atmosphere in the region as well as in international politics.

We have seen that each post-war period has its own challenges. Azerbaijan’s 30-year-old foreign policy has shifted to a different approach on some issues. President Ilham Aliyev, in order to protect the national interests of Azerbaijani people, expresses his determination towards peaceful, tranquil, and prosperous future at all bilateral and multilateral negotiations.

The fact that France and other states participated in negotiations and discussed a different agenda and then later accused Azerbaijan by using various means of occupation is political hypocrisy. Macron’s actions as a politician against Azerbaijan and France relations is also a betrayal.

French-Azerbaijani relations are, in general, focused on the development of the past 30 years. Azerbaijan supported France in many ways and has tried to help France as Europe’s cultural capital. France had the opportunity to sign the Peace Agreement in post-war periods, and to fulfil its peacekeeping mission. However, we saw that the French president was more interested in defaming Azerbaijan than in using this opportunity.

Some political leaders are not able to make the right decisions for the best interests of their people. Emmanuel Macron’s incompetent attitude in relations with Azerbaijan has caused a major blow to all the relationships that have been established so far. France is losing its voice in the European Union. This is clear evidence of the inept attitude of the French leader to current issues.

Recent French Senate resolution against Azerbaijan was adopted. It is contrary to international law norms and principles. This is a gross violation and violation of bilateral agreements between France and Azerbaijan that have been in place for many years.

This applies not only to France-Azerbaijani relations but also to the joint agreements reached regarding the full implementation all points of the tripartite Declaration signed on November 10, 2020 at all meetings held through EU, the efforts made towards this direction and general peace. This is a major blow to all the efforts made, the disregard and disrespect for international law norms and principles.

The Milli Majlis deputies raised radical ideas and suggestions, including the suspension of French-Azerbaijani relations as well as the revision of existing relationships. The Statement of the Republic of Azerbaijan of November 16 2022 adopted by Parliament of the Republic of Azerbaijan taking into consideration the ongoing anti-Azerbaijani actions of France, I believe, is representative of the views of Azerbaijani people and a clear warning to those who are attacking our country.
