With respect to the situation in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone, OSCE Chairperson-in-Office and German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said today in Berlin:
”I am very concerned about the military escalation along the Line of Contact in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone and about the casualties, including among civilians. I call upon the sides to end hostilities immediately and to respect the ceasefire in full.
There is no military solution to the conflict. The sides must now show the necessary political will to return to the negotiations in the framework of the Minsk Group. The Minsk Group Co-Chairs enjoy my full support in their task.”
