In the current situation, it is very important to expand the OSCE monitoring capacities: Armenia's PM had a phone conversation with Antonio Guterres


Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan held a phone conversation with the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on the latter's initiative.

Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan underscored that Armenia highly appreciates the constant attention the Secretary General pays to the peace and security in the South Caucasus. The Prime Minister of Armenia presented the escalation at the Armenian-Azerbaijani border in result of the provocations undertaken by Azerbaijan, emphasizing that those actions have been carried out regardless the call of the Secretary General for a global ceasefire amid the pandemic.

“I want to inform you that Armenia made every possible step to cease hostilities and de-escalate the situation on the border,” Nikol Pashinyan noted.

Touching upon Azerbaijan’s violations of arrangement reached on the cessation of hostilities, Prime Minister Pashinyan added that in the current situation we are observing contradictory statements and actions by the political-military leadership of Azerbaijan.

“We understand that there is a difficult domestic situation in Azerbaijan. But we cannot be hostage to a trap to which President Aliyev pushed himself. Years of spreading hatred towards Armenians and war threats created an illusion of military superiority which is now being painfully collapsed. We don’t know whether Azerbaijani leadership lacks capacity or willingness to prevent ceasefire violations and provocative rhetoric,” Nikol Pashinyan said.

The Prime Minister reiterated Armenia’s commitment to the peaceful settlement of the conflict, underscoring the ultimate importance of expanding the OSCE monitoring capacities and implementing previously reached agreements on that.

“It is necessary for the authorities of Azerbaijan to publicly renounce the use and threats of use of force. Azerbaijani leadership should recognize that there is no alternative to the peace talks,” the Prime Minister noted.

The UN Secretary-General expressed concern over the escalation in the region, stressing the need to take immediate steps towards the reduction of escalation, including through the implementation of agreements aimed at consolidation of the ceasefire. Antonio Guterres reiterated his support to the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairmanship.
