CoE Secretary General calls for immediate end to military operations around Artsakh

YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 27, ARMENPRESS. Secretary General of the Council of Europe Marija Pejčinović-Burić calls for an immediate end to the military operations around Nagorno Karabakh.

The CoE Secretary-General issued the following statement:

“I am gravely concerned about reports of military escalation of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict. I call on our Member States Armenia and Azerbaijan to show responsibility and restraint by immediately stopping hostilities.

When entering the Council of Europe, both countries committed themselves to solving the conflict by peaceful means, and this commitment is to be strictly respected.

In these difficult times my thoughts go to the civilians – including children, women, and the elderly –who once again feel more vulnerable than ever, as well as to all those suffering from the conflict.

On behalf of the Council of Europe, I call on the authorities of our two Member States to do everything possible to protect human lives and not to engage in military conflict. No efforts should be spared to stop the escalation.

In this respect, we reiterate our support for the OSCE Minsk group Co-chairs in their work to help our Member States find a peaceful solution to this conflict”.
