The OSCE is concerned by the recent events in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, OSCE Chairman-in-Office, German Foreign Minister Frank Walter Steinmeier said, addressing the OSCE Ministerial Council in Hamburg.
“In April, there was an escalation in the zone of the conflict, which shows that there is a danger of the re-ignition of this conflict,” Steinmeier said.
According to him, the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict remains dangerous and it is necessary to hold negotiations to find a solution to this conflict.
He also attached importance to the humanitarian aspects of the conflict resolution.
Steinmeier expressed full support for the OSCE Minsk Group. “There is a format for mediation in the negotiations on this conflict – this is the OSCE Minsk Group. It is now necessary for this process to get a second wind,” he added.
