On Monday, Lebanon’s Foreign Ministry released a statement in which it called on both Armenia and Azerbaijan to resolve their conflict diplomatically and with dialogue.
Lebanon said it regrets what is happening in the region of Nagorno-Karabakh and stands by the U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in calling both sides to stop fighting.
Lebanon urged dialogue between the countries as an effort to reach a rapid solution. In the statement, Lebanon also welcomed efforts of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe to manage the crisis.
If the conflict should escalate, it can spark a larger war with big players.
Lebanon’s concerns over this conflict unrelated to its affairs are nevertheless genuine. Lebanon is home to hundreds of thousands of Armenian descents, a large community that is an integral part of the Lebanese society and with political representations.
