India contributes to the peaceful settlement of the Artsakh issue under the auspices of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairmanship. Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of India to Armenia N.S. Kishan dan Deval said this in an exclusive interview on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of India, presenting his country’s principled position on the settlement of the Artsakh conflict. The Ambassador stressed that India’s official position is that any bilateral dispute should be resolved through peaceful negotiations, diplomatic dialogue, and mutual understanding, and war, the threat of force and violence have “no place” in such matters. Kishan dan Deval also thanked the Government of Armenia and the Armenian people for India’s assistance in the issue of Jammu and Kashmir, which are an integral part of India. Western Armenia welcomes this statement, recalling the territorial integrity of Armenia, and emphasizes that there can be peace if the territories come out of the occupation of Turkey and Azerbaijan.
