The Progressives do not support Azerbaijan’s armed incursion into the Nagorno-Karabakh territory. We particularly condemn repeated attacks against Armenian civilians. We invite both sides to refrain from attacks, and based upon UN resolution Nr. 822  and the European Parliament’s 2010 resolution , we invite Armenia to remove its occupation forces from Nagorno-Karabakh.
We oppose aggression against another state’s sovereign territory. This principle is central to Baltic security. We also invite Azerbaijan to observe the rights of the Armenian minority in this territory, and to confer autonomy similar to that of the Soviet period.
We recommend that Latvia request the European Union to proffer an EU peacekeeping force for the zone of conflict in order to protect civilians and maintain peace. We further recommend that a representative of the EU be added to the OSCE “Minsk group” to foster a peaceful resolution of the situation.
