MOSCOW, October 4 (Itar-Tass) —— The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) is ready to assist the Karabakh peace process, OSCE Secretary General Lamberto Zannier said on Tuesday.
In his words, the Karabakh settlement holds an important place on the OSCE agenda, and the organization is monitoring normalization efforts of the international community. Zannier lauded the Russian mediation in the Karabakh settlement and described the Russian initiatives as reasonable. He also hopes that the sides will reach a compromise.
The OSCE will assist the settlement of this conflict, but Armenia and Azerbaijan must show goodwill, he said.
Zannier also expressed hope for further dialog with Turkmenistan. He said he planned a visit to Turkmenistan for November and hoped to meet with the national leaders.
