Klaar and Pashinyan meet in Yerevan

The EU Special Representative for the South Caucasus and the crisis in Georgia Toivo Klaar has been received by Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan at a meeting in Yerevan on Friday (24 February).

According to a press release from the office of the Armenian PM, "The Prime Minister highly valued the cooperation between Armenia and the European Union and noted with satisfaction the fact of the institutional reforms being implemented in our country with the support of the EU."

Pashinyan emphasised the importance of the EU civilian mission in Armenia, which "will contribute to stability and peace in the region", according to the statement.

Klaar and Pashinyan also "referred to the consequences of the humanitarian, environmental and energy crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh", resulting from the blockade of Lachin Corridor.

On Wednesday (22 February), the International Court of Justice in The Hague obliged Azerbaijan to "take all measures at its disposal to ensure unimpeded movement of persons, vehicles and cargo along the Lachin Corridor in both directions". The ruling is legally binding.

"The interlocutors exchanged ideas on the process of normalisation of relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan," the statement concluded.
