Ambassador: Any step aimed at rapprochement of societies and establishment of a dialogue between the parties to Karabakh conflict will be welcomed by Germany

ArmInfo. Any step aimed at rapprochement of societies and establishment of a dialogue between the parties to the Karabakh conflict will be welcomed by Germany.  This was stated on September 12 in Yerevan by the German Ambassador to Armenia Matthias Kiesler, referring to the meeting of the spiritual leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan, initiated by the Patriarch of All Russia.

According to him, Germany welcomes the meeting of the spiritual leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan. The Ambassador expressed hope that this meeting will find an appropriate response in the societies of the conflicting parties. "I know that after the last year of the April war, the gulf between societies has increased, and we must try to do everything possible to overcome this precipice," Kiesler concluded.

To note, on September 8, a meeting of the spiritual leaders of Armenia, Russia and Azerbaijan Karekin II, Cyril and Allahshukur Pashazade dedicated to the Karabakh settlement was held in Moscow. The meeting was initiated by the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia. Following the meeting, the parties adopted a joint statement. In particular, the document reads: "Today we, the spiritual leaders of the Azerbaijani and Armenian peoples, met again in Moscow at the invitation of His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia to discuss the ways of peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, without which it is impossible to reach agreement and security on The Caucasus. We attach special importance to the consistent development of the peacekeeping dialogue, the continuation of the negotiations and the mediation efforts of the international community that will help achieve a comprehensive settlement of the conflict. Are we convinced that it is possible to overcome disagreements based on the principles of good neighborliness and moral values preached by traditional religions? the value of good, love of neighbor, mutual forgiveness and mercy. The Armenian and Azerbaijani peoples will always live side by side, so there is no other perspective, except peace and cooperation. In the face of numerous challenges, we, the spiritual leaders of our peoples, are obliged to seek joint answers. We pray for the preservation of peace and the speedy resolution of all humanitarian problems related to the conflict, and we call on the political and public figures of our peoples to do this. Together we are called upon to take care of the suffering and destitute, to testify to the eternal spiritual and moral values, to seek peaceful and just ways to resolve contradictions. It is extremely important to abandon the militant and hostile rhetoric. We appeal to those on whom this depends, with an appeal to facilitate the release of all civilians who did not participate in hostilities and were taken prisoner. We, as religious leaders, are called upon to protect churches, mosques and other shrines. Therefore, it is very important to ensure the inviolability of religious monuments and respect for them. We call upon our peoples to educate young people in the spirit of goodwill and mutual respect, peace and traditional morality. For our part, we express our readiness to support peacekeeping initiatives to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. The history of the tripartite meetings of spiritual leaders testifies to the positive impact of such contacts on the course of the settlement of the conflict, which should never develop into a religious confrontation. We cherish the ardent hope for the success of the negotiation process. We are ready to use all available opportunities for the sake of peace in the region. "
