Armenia-Azerbaijan: EU sets up monitoring capacity along international border

The EU Foreign Affairs Council  today decided to deploy up to 40 EU monitoring experts along the Armenian side of the international border with Azerbaijan. They will monitor, analyse and report on the situation in the region. 

This decision follows the quadrilateral meeting on 6 October between Azerbaijani President Aliyev, Armenian Prime Minister Pashinyan, French President Macron and European Council President Michel. It aims to help restore peace and security in the area, build confidence and delimit the international border between the two states.

To ensure the rapid deployment of the EU monitoring capacity, it has been decided that monitoring experts will be temporarily deployed from the European Union Monitoring Mission in Georgia (EUMM-Georgia). The EUMM is taking swift steps to ensure that its monitoring capacity in Georgia is not affected.

The monitoring mission will be temporary and in principle will not last more than two months.
