On Tuesday at 11.30, the Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan will hold a speech in the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
Mr Pashinyan’s visit takes place in the aftermath of Azerbaijan’s military attack and recapture of the breakaway enclave Nagorno-Karabakh on 19 September, which forced over 100 000 ethnic Armenians living in the area to flee their homes. In a resolution adopted on 5 October, MEPs strongly condemned the unjustified military offensive while highlighting that the Armenian exodus amounted to ethnic cleansing.
They also called on the EU to thoroughly reassess its relations with Azerbaijan and, among other things, to suspend the current Memorandum of Understanding on a Strategic Partnership in the Field of Energy between the EU and Baku government.
Mr Pashinyan has been Prime Minister of Armenia since May 2018.
