MEPs Tell Borrell Need for Sanctions Mechanism Against Azerbaijan After Attack on Armenia
A group of Members of European Parliament addressed a letter to the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission Josep Borrell requesting the EU to take urgent actions to protect Armenia from the Azerbaijani aggression, Armenpress reports.
''Since early today, 13 September 2022, an unprovoked and unjustified aggression against the sovereign territory of Armenia is yet another flagrant violation by Azerbaijan of the Charter of the United Nations, the Helsinki Final Act and the Trilateral Statement of 9 November 2020.
As of 11:00, the Armenian side has 49 confirmed casualties. Further numbers, including those wounded, are being verified.
In light of Azerbaijan’s clearly ple-planned and premeditated aggression, there is an urgent need for the EU to take decisive and adequate actions and steps to immediately stop Azerbaijan’s aggression against the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic of Armenia and prevent further escalation of the situation on the ground.
We consider that the EU should have an urgent, multi-level intervention in order to stop Azerbaijan’s aggression and make sure that it will not be repeated, through an effective sanctions’ mechanism.
It is our duty to protect Armenia and the Armenian people living under the constant war threat from Azerbaijan’s unstoppable aggression.
Please inform us, at your earliest convenience, what concrete steps you will take in order to assure that the EU can responsibly and effectively protect Armenia.”
The letter was signed by MEPs Emmanouil Fragkos, Jorg Meuthen, Beata Kempa, Lars Patrick Berg, Charlie Weimers, Ivan Stefanec, Joachim Kuhs, Eva Kaili, Filip de Man, Klemen Groselj, Karen Melchior and Costas Mavrides.
