YEREVAN, July 15 (Itar-Tass) - The OSCE Minsk Group can act more actively in the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement, OSCE Chairman-in-Office, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Leonid Kozhara said on Monday.
“Ukraine upholds the activity of the OSCE Minsk Group. However, it believes that the Minsk Group can be more active. Thus, its activity can yield more concrete results,” Kozhara said.
“No conflict can be settled after any conference or session. Practical efforts are indispensable,” the Ukrainian minister stressed.
The OSCE chairman-in-office recalled that the settlement of frozen conflicts was one of the priorities for Ukraine in its OSCE presidency.
“Ukraine is encircled by frozen conflicts. These are Moldova and the South Caucasus. That is why we rivet too much attention to this issue.” “Ukraine believes that it is necessary to make the process more active and to hold meetings within different formats: at the level of presidents and foreign ministers,” Kozhara said.
He called for organizing meetings between civil societies. Ukraine is ready to host such meetings, the minister added.
