«Member of the European Parliament Frank Engel wants Europe in Nagorno-Karabakh». A video with this claim appeared recently on Facebook. It refers to an appeal that is aimed at initiating EU engagement with Nagorno-Karabakh.
«Nagorno-Karabakh’s isolation is unique. The EU provides aid to 150 countries around the World. It also provides aid to people in many unrecognized territories such as Abkhazia, Transnistria and Northern Cyprus regardless of their status. This policy is called “engagement without recognition”.
We call on the EU to engage with Nagorno-Karabakh and support projects to improve the living conditions of its population because EU policies should contribute to the welfare, not to the hardship of populations in Europe and in its periphery», the appeal states.
