YEREVAN, June 27 (Itar-Tass) - The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict should be settled only by peaceful means, CSTO Secretary-General Nikolai Bordyuzha said on Thursday.
“Only peace talks and consensus allow us to solve the complicated problem. There are no other variants,” Bordyuzha said.
“The latest events in the Caucasus prove once again that it is very easy to unleash the conflict and take a decision on using force. Then it is very difficult to launch the peace process.” “Unfortunately, in the 1990’s we witnessed military conflicts in many areas on the post-Soviet space. This is Central Asia and the west of the former Soviet Union: we experienced through all difficulties to reach peace in the region.” “Many politicians forgot about this negative experience. They should remember what happened in 1990’s. This will have a chilling effect,” Bordyuzha said.
“The CSTO knows the situation in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone. Of course, we watch the situation,” he added.
“The OSCE Minsk Group deals with the conflict. I’m against anyone, including the CSTO, to interfere in the settlement and add new instruments to achieve the goal.” “This is counter-productive,” Bordyuzha stressed.
The settlement of the conflict “is the matter of the leadership of Armenia and Azerbaijan with the mediation of the Minsk Group,” the secretary-general said.
