Representatives of the OSCE Minsk Group co-chair countries (Russia, France, USA) confirmed the need to comply with agreements to strengthen the ceasefire regime of 1994 and 1995. It was agreed to take steps to continuously monitor their implementation and implement incident investigation mechanisms, expand the office of the personal representative of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office, and possibly resume the negotiation process to resolve the conflict.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov positively assessed the meeting in Vienna, stating that Russia will continue to contribute to the process of de-escalating the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh. Words Sergei Lavrov leads news agency TASS:
We have reason to believe that the Armenian and Azerbaijani negotiators are determined to formulate compromises. We will contribute to this.
Recall that the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh with a new force broke out 2 April. In a few days of intense fighting, dozens (according to other sources, hundreds) of servicemen from both sides died. Baku and Yerevan blamed each other for military provocations. 5 April reached the first ceasefire agreement. However, until now the Armenian and Azerbaijani soldiers continue to accuse each other of separate shelling of their positions.
