OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs travelled Baku, NKR and Yerevan

The Co-Chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group Ambassadors Robert Bradtke of the United States, Igor Popov of the Russian Federation, and Jacques Faure of France and Ambassador Andrzej Kasprzyk, the Personal Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office, traveled July 10-13 to Baku, Nagorno-Karabakh, and Yerevan.

The Co-Chairs plan to meet again separately with the Foreign Ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan in order to prepare for a joint meeting of the Ministers in September, OSCE press service reported.

The Co-Chairs expressed their deep concern over recent incidents along the frontlines, and reiterated that the sides' political will to achieve peace is best demonstrated by refraining from maximalist positions, respecting the 1994 ceasefire agreement, and abstaining from hostile public rhetoric.

Regarding reports of the planned opening of an airport in Nagorno-Karabakh, the Co-Chairs received renewed assurances from the sides that they will reject any threat or use of force against civil aircraft, pursue the matter through diplomatic steps, and refrain from politicizing the issue.

The Co-Chairs reaffirmed that operation of this airport cannot be used to support any claim of a change in the status of Nagorno-Karabakh, and urged the sides to act in accordance with international law and consistent with current practice for flights over their territory.
