The Co-Chair of OSCE Minsk Group James Warlick was asked how he imagines return of the refugees to Nagorno-Karabakh.

The question came from the residents of Kashatag region of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic who gathered near the administrative center of Berdzor.

“Safarov was also so-called refugee from Nagorno-Karabakh. How do you imagine their return? Agression continues, and Safarov case is another proof,” one of the residents told Warlick.

In response the OSCE diplomat recalled his statement, underscoring that “all six elements are necessary for peace” and none of them can be taken out.

The residents asked whether the position of Minsk Group will change. The American Co-Chair, for his part, said in the statement issued on the twentieth anniversary of the ceasefire agreement, the mediators spoke “with a common agenda and with a common mind”, and they “will continue to work on this issue as co-chairs”.

The locals reminded the Co-Chairs that, according to international right, every nation has a right to self-defense.

“We used our right to self-defense to stop Azerbaijan’s aggression,” one of the residents said.
