The Czech Republic fully supports EU’s relations with Armenia, Czech Ambassador to Armenia Petr Mikyska told a press conference at the National Press Club.
The Ambassador said he hopes Armenia and EU will sign the Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement during the Eastern Partnership summit in Brussels.
“We support EU’s relations with Armenia. We also support a new agreement expected to be signed during the Eastern Partnership summit in Brussels. We support the European Commission and External Action Service in their programs here in Armenia, and we are trying to get involved actively in these programs,” Ambassador Mikyska said.
Speaking about the recent escalation at the Line of Contact and the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, the Ambassador said “we are totally against any armed conflicts, any attacks on international borders.” “We are rejecting any violations of ceasefire not only on an international border, but also the Line of Contact,” he added.
The conflict in Nagorno Karabakh is dealt with by the OSCE Minsk Group and this is the only format acceptable to the international community, Mr. Mikyska said.
“Negotiated solution is the only one. We are living in the 21st century and all conflicts must be solved by peaceful means,” he added.
