Comment by Edward Nalbandian, Foreign Affairs Minister of Armenia, on the Los Cabos Statement on Nagorno-Karabakh
We highly appreciate the efforts of heads of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chair states- the Presidents of Russia, the USA and France, aimed at the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
This statement adopted in Los Cabos by Presidents Vladimir Putin, Barack Obama and François Hollande is the fourth one made by the heads of the Co-Chair countries on the Nagorno-Karabakh issue which may become an impetus for the negotiation process.
Armenia is unanimous with the Co-Chair countries in its resolute commitment to achieving an exclusively peaceful settlement of the issue.
Staying committed to the achieved agreements, reflected in the Statement of Sochi made by the Presidents of Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan on January 23, Armenia will continue its efforts aimed at the approval of the Basic principles of the conflict settlement.
As the Co-Chair countries, we have many times urged to respect the ceasefire agreement of May 1994 and abstain from hostile rhetoric that increases tension.
Azerbaijan not only is rejecting those proposals, but is also flagrantly violating the ceasefire and continuously masterminding provocations.
