RA Deputy Foreign Minister Vahe Gevorgyan attended and delivered a speech at the annual OSCE Security Review Forum held on June 28-29. As reported by the RA Foreign Ministry, touching upon the security challenges of the OSCE region, the Deputy Minister noted: “The continued violations of the ceasefire regime established by Azerbaijan in the trilateral statement of November 9, 2020, Azerbaijan’s steps to create a humanitarian crisis in Artsakh in March this year, the obstruction of the work of the OSCE formats created to resolve the Artsakh conflict, indicate that effective cooperation is necessary to counter security challenges in the OSCE territory participating countries and the restoration of the fundamental principles. According to the source, expressing support for the format of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-chairmanship, the Deputy Foreign Minister stressed the importance of its activities aimed at ensuring the realization of the right of the people of Artsakh, including to determine their own future, as a key goal of the settlement of the Artsakh conflict. The importance of the OSCE’s involvement in humanitarian issues, including the release of Armenian captives of war and protection of cultural heritage was also noted.
