German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock has called on Russia and Azerbaijan to ensure the safety of the people in Nagorno-Karabakh.
"Azerbaijan and Russia, in particular, must ensure the safety of people in their own homes," Baerbock said on the sidelines of the 78th session of the UN General Assembly (GA) in New York.
The solution, she said, "can only be diplomatic," which is what the European Union and the FRG government are actively striving for, including on the margins of the UNGA.
"There will be a peaceful solution to this conflict only if the military actions of the past and present are immediately stopped," the German foreign minister emphasized.
Azerbaijan launched a large-scale attack against Nagorno-Karabakh on September 19, among the casualties and wounded are civilians. On September 20, it became known that the authorities of the Republic of Artsakh accepted the proposal of the command of the Russian peacekeeping mission regarding the cessation of fire.
Proposal by Azerbaijan envisages the withdrawal of the remaining units and servicemen of the RA Armed Forces from the deployment zone of the Russian peacekeeping troops and the dissolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh armed formations, the complete disarmament of the Defense Army, as well as the withdrawal of heavy equipment and weapons from the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh in order to quickly eliminate them.
In addition, on Thursday, the representatives of Artsakh and Azerbaijan will meet in Yevlakh, a city in Azerbaijan located about 100 km northeast of Stepanakert, and the issues of ensuring the security of Nagorno-Karabakh Armenians will be discussed.
