ArmInfo. The key issue in the context of the Karabakh settlement is the status of Nagorno Karabakh, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said on June 10 at a meeting with the Foreign Ministers of the member countries of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) and Secretary General of the Organization Stanislav Zas.
As the press service of the RA PM reports, "during the meeting with the CSTO Foreign Ministers, the Prime Minister of Armenia referred to the current regional situation, speaking about the activities of the Armenia-Azerbaijan Delimitation and Border Security Commission, the opening of regional communication routes, the return of Armenian prisoners of war, hostages and other civilians being kept in Azerbaijan till now. In this context, Nikol Pashinyan highlighted the support of the international community.
The Prime Minister emphasized that Armenia is interested in unblocking regional communications, and all the roads that will be opened will operate under the sovereignty of the countries through which they pass. There can be no "corridor" logic, and this perception is shared by everyone. In the context of the settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict, Nikol Pashinyan emphasized the issue of the status of Nagorno Karabakh, stressing that the conflict should be settled peacefully within the framework of the format of OSCE Minsk Group Co-chairs.
The Prime Minister of Armenia noticed that the issue of the incursion of Azerbaijani troops into the sovereign territory of Armenia since May 2021 still remains open, in connection with which Armenia applied to the CSTO. In this context, the sides exchanged views on the improvement of CSTO monitoring and rapid response mechanisms, which will increase the effectiveness of the organization in meeting the security challenges of the member states."
On June 10, in Yerevan, under the chairmanship of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Armenia Ararat Mirzoyan, a meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the member countries of the Collective Security Treaty Organization is being held. The agenda includes issues of international and regional security, strengthening the CSTO crisis response mechanisms.
