OSCE Chairperson-in-Office: Conflict will not be resolved by the use of force

The OSCE Chairperson-in-Office, Ireland’s Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Eamon Gilmore called on all participants of Nagorno Karabakh conflict to refrain from the use or threat of force and to abstain from retaliatory measures. SIA reports that Gilmore strongly condemned the recent incidents on the contact line following a meeting with the Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian. "I strongly condemn the recent violent incidents. This conflict will not be resolved by the use of force. The cycle of violence must be stopped. I will deliver this message in Azerbaijan on Thursday. The time has come to build trust; this requires will and commitment on the part of all those involved to seek peace."
The Chairperson stressed his support for the mediation efforts of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs: "The OSCE can help to bridge differences between countries and between peoples. We can provide a forum for dialogue and support the sides to strengthen the ceasefire and find a negotiated solution."
"However, in order to make progress towards resolving this long-standing conflict, the sides should further advance their work on the general principles of a resolution, remove snipers from the line of contact, agree on a mechanism for investigating incidents on the frontlines.
