German Federal Government issues statement on Khojaly airport

Baku – APA. German Minister of State at the Foreign Office Cornelia Pieper issued a statement on Khojaly airport, the European Azerbaijan Society told APA.

 

The statement says: “A resumption of aviation at the airport without the permission of the Azerbaijani side would contradict the spirit of the ceasefire agreement made between Armenia and Azerbaijan in 1994 and would carry the risk of an escalation of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

 

The Co-Chairmen of the OSCE Minsk-Group declared on July 13th 2012 that re-opening the airport could not be used to bring about a change in the status of Nagorno-Karabakh and they called on all sides to seek a diplomatic solution and to act in accordance with International Law.

 

The Federal Government, together with their partners in the European Union, supports the OSCE Minsk Group in its objective to stress to Armenia and Azerbaijan the necessity of refraining from any activity that could fuel tensions further and of working towards a peaceful solution.”
