WE WANT EUROPE IN ARTSAKH

 

 

 

On July 14, AGBU Armenia hosted a press briefing and a public discussion to present AGBU Europe’s campaign for the European Union to engage in Artsakh (Nagorno Karabakh) Republic. The speakers - Artsakh Human Rights Defender Ruben Melikyan, AGBU Armenia Executive Director Talar Kazanjian, AGBU Europe Director Nicolas Tavitian (live from Brussels), and Coordinator of the Federation of Armenian Organizations in Belgium Shahnur Minasyan - presented the goals of the campaign and how the support of the relevant institutions and the general public can help achieve those goals.

For 28 years, the population of Nagorno-Karabakh have been living under blockade. This is the only territory where EU officials never go and where Europe provides no aid. 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”.
