Germany: Bundestag debates Nagorno-Karabakh long-term peace solution

Germany, Berlin
November 26, 2020 at 21:37 GMT +00:00 · Published

Germany's political parties debated potential options for a lasting peace in Nagorno-Karabakh in Berlin on Thursday.

The Bundestag session was named "Support of the development of a long-term peace solution in Nagorno-Karabakh."

"Russia was the deal maker, but the European Union and NATO have to become the guarantor for a long-term peace in the region,” said Nikolas Loebel, a member of parliament for CDU/CSU, adding that it was in strategical interests of the European Union.

"It would have been important to put pressure on those, who inflamed the conflict, and this was underlined by all fractions in this house, namely Mr Erdogan and the Turkish government,'' said Armin-Paulus Hampel, a member of parliament for Alternative for Germany (AfD).

Gregor Gysi from Die Linke said that a long-term and viable peace solution for Nagorno-Karabakh “will only work with Russia as a partner and not as an opponent or conflicting party."

The motion by the ruling coalition has been agreed on by CDU/CSU with no votes from the AfD and abstentions from FDP, the Green Party and Die Linke.
