STRASBOURG — New resolution adopted by the European Parliament provides for informal contacts and consultations with the societies and de facto authorities of the breakaway territories, including those in the South Caucasus.
The European Parliament adopted resolution on Thursday on the review of the European Neighbourhood Policy.
The resolution calls on the EU’s stronger engagement in security issues in the Eastern Neighbourhood. It also calls to step up EU’s involvement in finding a solution to the protracted conflicts in Transnistria and the South Caucasus based on the principles of international law – in particular non-use of force, self-determination and territorial integrity – through more active policy stances, more active participation and a more prominent role in permanent and ad hoc conflict resolution structures, including already existing negotiating formats, particularly those of the OSCE.
The parliamentarians also call to develop more confidence-building measures and programmes, including the launching of new missions and public communication strategies and the consideration of pragmatic initiatives and innovative approaches such as informal contacts and consultations with the societies and de facto authorities of the breakaway territories, while conserving the EU’s non-recognition policy, in order to support civic culture and community dialogue.
