Canada urges both sides to refrain immediately from using force, to respect the ceasefire and protect civilians

The Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Foreign Affairs, today issued the following statement:
     “Canada is concerned by the violence along the Armenia-Azerbaijan border.

“Alongside the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe’s Minsk Group, Canada urges both sides to refrain immediately from using force, to respect the ceasefire and protect civilians.
