RA Deputy Foreign Minister Vahe Gevorgyan stressed the importance of the OSCE’s involvement in the release of Armenian captives of war. In his speech Gevorgyan also noted that the prolonged violations of the ceasefire regime established by Azerbaijan in the trilateral statement of November 9, 2020, indicate that effective cooperation of the participating countries is necessary to counter security challenges in the OSCE territory. Expressing support for the format of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-chairmanship, Gevorgyan stressed the importance of its activities aimed at ensuring the realization of the right of the people of Artsakh, including the determination of their own future, as a key goal of the settlement of the Artsakh conflict. Western Armenia is studying the ongoing processes and will give its appropriate response as needed.
