Karabakh conflict: Germany calls for mechanism to investigate border incidents

OSCE Chairman-in-Office, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier says he does not consider the conflicts in Nagorno Karabakh and Transdniestria are “frozen.”

“They bring suffering to people year after year and hamper the development in the corresponding regions,” Mr. Steinmeier said in an interview with Interfax.

“We plan to strengthen the ceasefire regimes, reinforce trust and ease everyday life of the people in the conflict zones, e.g. through intensification of economic exchange,” the German Foreign Minister added.

“As for the Karabakh conflict, the military clashes at the line of contact and at the Armenian-Azerbaijani border are causes of concern. Germany stands for intensification of negotiations within the framework of the Minsk Group. Creation of a mechanism of investigation of border incidents would be an important step here,” Frank-Walter Steinmeier said.
