Hungary blocks EU statement on Karabakh - media

Sep 22, 2023

Hungary has not given its consent to approve a statement on behalf of all 27 EU member states on the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh.

This was reported by Radio Liberty's Europe editor Rikard Jozwiak.

The EU Foreign Policy Service released a statement by the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell the day before, in which he warned Azerbaijan of measures in case of violation of the rights of Karabakh Armenians.


According to Dzogviak, this statement was planned to be submitted as a joint position of all 27 EU countries, but Budapest did not agree.

"It was supposed to be a statement of the 27 EU members, but Hungary blocked it," Dzogvjak wrote on his Twitter account (X), citing three separate sources familiar with the document's preparation.

Borrell's statement said that Azerbaijan has a responsibility to ensure the rights and security of Karabakh Armenians, including their right to live in their homes without intimidation or discrimination.
