ArmInfo. When it comes to Nagorno-Karabakh, there remains a real risk of escalation. As Trend reports, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Slovakia and OSCE Chairman-in-Office Miroslav Lajcak said this at the 26th meeting of the OSCE Council of Foreign Ministers in Bratislava (Slovakia).
"Dialogue has continued throughout the year. Through various platforms, the organization tried to build trust, relieve tension and maintain dialogue. When it comes to Nagorno-Karabakh, there remains a real risk of escalation. As the outgoing chair, I do not have any magic formula on how to resolve these conflicts once and for all. What I do have is the strong belief that the OSCE efforts from deescalating tension to opening channels for a new dialogue are invaluable and this organization will be the first to offer its support for concrete steps towards peace," Lajcak added.
To note, today in the capital of Slovakia, Bratislava, the 26th meeting of the OSCE Council of Foreign Ministers has opened.
Yesterday, in the same Bratislava, a meeting of the Foreign Ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan was held with the mediation of the Co-Chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group. During the meeting, the parties discussed the promotion of the peace negotiations on Nagorno-Karabakh and agreed to meet early next year to continue the dialogue.
