PARIS (Reuters) – French President Emmanuel Macron said on Thursday that the situation was serious in Nagorno-Karabakh and that he would do anything to move towards a peaceful resolution.

Macron told reporters upon his arrival at an EU summit in Brussels that a plane was set to repatriate two injured French journalists.

France, Russia and the United States on Thursday called for an immediate ceasefire between Azerbaijan and ethnic Armenian forces around Nagorno-Karabakh and urged rival parties to resume negotiations without delay.
