On November 19, within the framework of the visit of Minister of Culture and Youth Affairs of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic Narine Aghabalian to France, a Friendship Declaration between the NKR Askeran and French Bouc-Bel-Air cities was signed at the City Hall of Bouc-Bel-Air.

The Declaration welcomes the consistent steps of the people and authorities of Nagorno Karabakh towards the establishment and development of a free and democratic society and considers as unacceptable the isolation of the people of Artsakh. It is aimed at strengthening the friendly relations between the two cities and establishing cooperation in the educational, cultural, and sports spheres.
