YEREVAN, NOVEMBER 29, ARMENPRESS: Hostile rhetoric, lack of trust
and communication between Armenian and Azerbaijani society impede any
progress in the NKR negotiations. As reports Armenpress referring to

and Crisis in Georgia noted in Baku.

"EU doesn't consider NKR Negotiations to be frozen. Only its solution
is frozen" Lefort said noting that EU is interested in the peaceful
settlement of the conflict. According to EU representative it is
necessary to continue the negotiation process where both sides will
be reasonable and ready for compromising.

and reach peace. When speaking about EU priorities in South Caucasus

resources to Europe, spreading European values over the region as well
as coming together against the terrorism, trafficking and cybercrime.
