European Friends of Armenia issue statement Karabakh

16:01, 19.06.2012 Region: World News, Armenia, Karabakh, Azerbaijan Theme: Politics

The on-going snail pace escalation of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict brings dramatic risks for the entire South-Caucasus region, as well as for the Middle East and Europe, European Friends of Armenia said in a statement.

The organization shared the disappointment and recommendations issued by the three Co-Chairing Presidents at the G20 summit in Los Cabos (Mexico).

“In particular we regret that Azerbaijan continues blocking the key confidence building measures, i.e. the establishment of an investigation mechanism for incidents on the line of contact, the removal of snipers and promotion of people to people contacts. The on-going snail pace escalation of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict brings dramatic risks for the entire South-Caucasus region, as well as for the Middle East and Europe.

EuFoA repeats its call upon the EU and other international actors to stop “calls upon both sides” and instead to specify more clearly which actions are expected from each side, as otherwise the respective sources of the problems are encouraged to continue their dangerous behavior,” they said in a statement.
