Envoy: Iran ready to mediate in Karabakh dispute

Iranian Ambassador to Baku Mohsen Pakayeen voiced Tehran’s readiness to help resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh region, cautioning that the OSCE Minsk group which spearheads efforts in this regard is not completely impartial.

“Iran as the rotating president of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) and active member of the Islamic Cooperation Organization (OIC) is ready to mediate and help end the skirmishes, revive the conditions existing before the conflict, including observation of borderlines,” Pakayeen said in an interview with Azeri Trend news agency.

Noting that the Karabakh issue is a 20-year-old dispute and Azerbaijan and Armenia have chosen the OSCE Minsk group to settle the issue, he said, “I believe that the Minsk group is not impartial in this dispute and the settlement of the Karabakh dispute has, thus, failed to be successful.”
