Armenia has on Friday welcomed the joint statement of the leaders of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Minsk Group co-chair countries, saying it remains committed to the peaceful resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
Russia, France and the United States have issued a joint statement, calling for an immediate ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh and a resumption of negotiations without preconditions.
“We welcome the fact that the Minsk Group co-chairs at the level of their leaders reacted to the use of force in the Nagorno Karabakh conflict zone by way of strong condemnation,” the Armenian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
Armenia is ready to “engage with the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chair countries to re-establish a ceasefire regime based on the 1994-1995 agreements,” said the statement.
The Minsk Group of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) on the settlement of the conflict was formed in 1992, and includes a number of countries that are being co-chaired by Russia, the United States and France. The other member states are Belarus, Italy, Finland, Germany, Sweden, Turkey, Armenia and Azerbaijan.
