Resolution of Karabakh conflict should remain high on international agenda, Latvian President says
“For Latvia, the stability and security of Europe’s neighbors in the East is a strategic priority and remains high on the political agenda,” said President of Latvia Raimonds Vējonis in his statement to the 71st session of the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN) on Wednesday, September 21 in New York.
“Resolution of the protracted conflicts in Transnistria, Abkhazia, South Ossetia and Nagorno-Karabakh should remain high on the international agenda. We must remain vigilant and insist that all States including Russia abide by their obligations under international law to respect the borders of sovereign States,” the Latvian President said at a sitting chaired by Armenia’s Acting Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian.
“The international community must work to facilitate the peaceful resolution of the conflict in eastern Ukraine. All parties must fulfill their commitments under the Minsk Agreements and make the Minsk process work,” President Vējonis stated.
