YEREVAN, NOVEMBER 25, ARMENPRESS. Member of the European Parliament Lars Patrick Berg is planning to raise the issue of Azeri use of Syrian mercenaries against Artsakh at the European Parliament.

“I will address these issues in the European Parliament, especially the involvement of Syrian mercenaries by Azerbaijan in the war. We talked about the use of the internationally banned cluster munitions, for which there are multiple evidences, and the need for the international community to launch an investigation into this.
