VIENNA, January 25, /ITAR-TASS/. The co-chairs of the Minsk Group of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, during the talks in Paris on Friday on the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, expressed concern over the recent cases of use of force in the region.
The organization in a statement noted the co-chairs of the group (Russia, France and the United States), together with OSCE special envoy Andrzej Kasprzyk, noted, addressing Azerbaijani and Armenian Premiers Elmar Mamedyarov and Edvard Nalbandyan, who were participating in the talks, that such cases undermined the talks and obscured the prospects for the peaceful settlement.
The co-chairmen called on the parties of the conflict to fully and strictly comply with the terms of the armistice agreement.
The government heads and the members of the Minsk Group discussed the peaceful settlement process in light of the results of the Vienna meeting of the presidents of the two countries in November last year. The prime ministers reiterated the sides' readiness to continue the work aimed at the peaceful settlement of the conflict.
During the Paris round of the talks, the co-chairmen agreed to visit the region in the next few weeks to continue talks with the planned participation of the two presidents.
