NATO calls Armenia and Azerbaijan to return to negotiations and work  in direction of peace settlement

ArmInfo.On February 27, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan in NATO Headquarters discussed the current challenges in the field of security and partnership.

As the Alliance's press service told ArmInfo, The Secretary General  thanked Armenia for its contributions to NATO's missions in  Afghanistan and Kosovo. He stressed that the Alliance is committed to  working with Armenia and other partners. "Together, we are developing  a new Individual Partnership Action Plan, tailored to your needs and  requirements," said Mr. Stoltenberg. He added that there are  opportunities for further cooperation on interoperability, defence  reform and defence education. The Secretary General praised Armenia  for its participation in NATO's Building Integrity Programme to  counter corruption in the armed forces, and its progress on  implementing UN Security Council Resolution 1325 to promote the role  of women in peace and security.

The Secretary General and President Sargsyan also discussed the  Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. Mr.  Stoltenberg expressed concern over  the continuing violence along the line of contact. "It is important  to avoid escalation, because there is no military solution to this  conflict and its persistence is holding back the region," he said.  NATO encourages both Armenia and Azerbaijan to return to the  negotiating table and work toward a peaceful resolution to the  conflict.
