Baku on sending OSCE mission to Armenia

Baku on sending OSCE mission to Armenia

ArmInfo. Baku commented on the issue of sending an OSCE mission to Armenia.  Thus, the Zerbaijaniforeign policy, commenting on this information, assured  that the issue of such a mission has never been discussed by any  collective decision-making body of the OSCE, and no decisions have  been made on this matter.

"At the same time, any group called the OSCE Mission for the  Assessment of the Needs of Armenia does not have an OSCE mandate,  cannot be associated with the OSCE in any way, and none of its  results or reports will be accepted as OSCE documents. This  unilateral initiative put forward by Armenia is nothing more than a  personal visit of a group of several participating states, and any  result of such a visit will be assessed accordingly," the Azerbaijani  Foreign Ministry noted.  

Baku stated that "this step raises serious  questions and such unilateral actions of the OSCE Chairmanship and  Secretariat, among other things, contradict the basic principles of  any responsible and reliable mediation and confidence-building, which  require the consent of the parties, the impartiality of the mediators  and compliance with the obligations of states arising from the  international rights".  

As ArmInfo previously reported, at the invitation of the Government  of the Republic of Armenia, the OSCE will send a needs assessment  team to the country, which will arrive from October 21-27.  The  purpose of the visit is to assess the situation in some border areas  on the basis of the mandate and experience of the OSCE within its  comprehensive security concept.  A technical team composed of  international experts and representatives of the OSCE Secretariat  will visit areas along the Armenian-Azerbaijani border and hold  on-site consultations with relevant national and local stakeholders,  as well as international partners.
