CSTO Secretary General: Karabakh conflict is under continuous review  of the Organization

ArmInfo. The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is under continuous review of the CSTO. The  Secretary General of the CSTO Stanislav Zas said this in Yerevan in a  conversation with reporters on February 28, referring to the  Organization's actions to respond more quickly to issues sensitive to  Armenia.

"We have already built a good system of informing all other CSTO  states on this issue from Armenia.  Believe me, this issue is  discussed at each summit of the heads of state. Everyone is  sufficiently informed.  If necessary, the CSTO will express its  position on this conflict. This has been done more than once. In  principle, the statements of the heads of state and foreign ministers  are publicly available, I will not comment on them or repeat them.  But the essence of the position is understandable, "said Zas,  recalling that the CSTO stands for a peaceful resolution to the  conflict, and he sees only one way to solve the problem - it is  political.

According to him, this is a settlement within the framework of the  co-chairmanship of the OSCE Minsk Group, and the work carried out by  this group, of course, based on the norms and principles of  international law, the UN Charter, the Helsinki Final Act.

Answering a question about incidents on the Armenian-Azerbaijani  state border, the CSTO Secretary General emphasized that if Armenia  appeals for help to the CSTO states, the organization as a whole, she  will express her position and provide the necessary assistance.

"But now the Armenian government is independently managing these  border incidents. We hope that the situation will be stabilized and  clashes can be avoided," he said.
