EU says working to ensure de-escalation in South Caucasus

President of the European Council Charles Michel held separate calls with Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev to discuss the latest developments in the region on Friday, August 5.

“Working together to ensure de-escalation and open connections,” Michel said in a tweet.

“Ahead of our next meeting of leaders in Brussels, pursuing dialogue and achieving concrete progress on all items on the agenda is key. The EU remains committed.”

Two Nagorno-Karabakh soldiers were killed and 19 others were injured in Azerbaijan's multiple drone attacks on Wednesday, the Defense Army said. The Azerbaijani military continues violating the ceasefire overnight, using various caliber firearms.
