The President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) has called on Armenia and Azerbaijan to redouble efforts towards a solution to their conflict.

Speaking at the PACE plenary session, Tiny Kox noted that many important issues in Europe require serious attention.

One of them is the recent escalation of military actions between Armenia and Azerbaijan, which has led to new casualties on both sides, he said.

Many other important challenges in Europe, Mr Kox stated, “require our close attention this week. One of them is the recent most worrying escalation in hostilities between Armenia and Azerbaijan which has led to further casualties on both sides. I urge both countries to double their efforts in finding a peaceful sustainable solution to the conflict that so negatively affects lives of millions of people in the South Caucasus region. I call on Armenian and Azerbaijani parliamentarians to use this Assembly as an agora of opportunities to discuss the most difficult issues and to establish a meaningful dialogue to try to bridge disagreements. Again: if not now, when then?”, the PACE President added.
