MOSCOW, April 4. /TASS/. Foreign ministers of Russia and Germany Sergey Lavrov and Frank-Walter Steinmeier have said in a telephone conversation on Monday that the standoff over Nagorno-Karabakh has no military solution and called on the parties to show restraint, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Monday.
The two ministers "voiced profound concern over the sharp escalation of the situation along the contact line of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, which has already led to numerous casualties, including among the civilian population." Lavrov and Steinmeier "were unanimous in saying that the standoff in the region had no military solution and spoke out in favor of restraint to be shown by the parties, the immediate ceasefire and return to the negotiation process under the auspices of the OSCE Minsk Group."
They also exchanged views "on a number of pressing issues on the international agenda, including the tasks of coordinating actions to promote the Ukrainian settlement based on the implementation of the Minsk agreements through the Contact Group mechanism under the supervision of the "Normandy Four" and support of other members of the international community."
