At a joint press conference with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that at the moment it is of central importance for Germany to mobilize efforts for the peaceful settlement of the conflict between the Republic of Armenia and Azerbaijan.

Scholz noted that Germany is concerned about the unstable situation on the Armenia-Azerbaijan border.

"Such a situation cannot remain like this for a long time. There is a risk of further escalation. This is evidenced by the events of the previous months and weeks. Naturally, we do not forget the humanitarian situation that is taking place. Our common goal should be to find a long-term and viable solution to this conflict for the benefit of the people of Artsakh," he said, adding that a peaceful settlement of the conflict should be based on the preservation of the territorial integrity of the Republic of Armenia and Azerbaijan.
