Lajcak: OSCE to work to harness opportunities created by positive momentums in Karabakh settlement process
OSCE will work to harness opportunities created by positive momentums in the process of settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, said OSCE Chair and Slovakian Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajcak in a briefing in Vienna, Trend reports.
“The major challenges facing OSCE region today - and, indeed, the wider world - demand more cooperation and more dialogue than ever before. Slovakia is determined to be impartial, fair and honest in our role as partners and mediators during the course of our 2019 OSCE Chairmanship,” he said.
Lajcak pointed out that Slovakia will focus on how conflict is mediated, resolved and prevented - as well as on people who are living through it.
“We need to prepare for “a Safer Future”,” he added.
The 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations. Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
