The EU and the South Caucasus: The place of Azerbaijan

Evgeni Kirilov, MEP and Rapporteur of the European Parliament, examines EU’s policy on the South Caucasus. He stresses that after the Russia-Georgia conflict in 2008, it became clear that sooner or later the EU will have to play an active role with regards to the unresolved conflicts in the region. In this sense it is very important for the EU to step up its efforts to achieve peaceful resolution of the conflicts in the South Caucasus, including in Nagorno-Karabakh, in order to guarantee the sustainable peace and stability at its Eastern border as well as to successfully develop forward policies there.
