The reporter said three South Caucasus republics should form a stable basis of regional security, freedom, democracy and development.
“Calls for war contribute nothing but escalation of the situation. The expansionism is unacceptable in the world where integration processes are going. There should be Nagorno-Karabakh’s safer access to Armenia and Azerbaijan’s to Nakhchivan. Everyone should feel himself safe irrespectively of his nationality and belonging to any national minorities. The settlement of problems of refugees and IDPs is important from this point of view,” the report says.
Goran Lenmarker said the status of Nagorno-Karabakh is a key issue in this process. “If the problem is settled on the integration principles then status question could be agreed easily. Open borders and integrated economy will minimize the importance of issue of control over territories. Nagorno-Karabakh wants to become independent but there are many minority groups in the Caucasus. The international community has no intention to give independence all of them, including Nagorno-Karabakh. But it is important that Nagorno-Karabakh and Armenia have direct relations. Azerbaijan is prepared to grant the highest autonomy to Nagorno-Karabakh,” the report continues. /APA/
