Bank Of France Chief Attacked With Hammer In June

France said on Tuesday it will ask the UN Security Council to debate the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan after fresh border clashes between the historic rivals left dozens dead.

“France will take the situation before the Security Council of the United Nations, of which it currently holds the presidency,” President Emmanuel Macron’s office said following a call between Macron and his Armenian┬ácounterpart Nikol Pashinyan.

Macron called for both a ceasefire and “strict respect” for Armenia’s territorial integrity, the presidency said.

Macron was available for talks with Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev, as well as any discussions about resolving issues between both sides “by negotiation only”, it added.
