Baku. Victoria Dementieva – APA. “The issue is not so much whether the parties need to show good faith and confidence in the OSCE but rather, I think, that whether they have confidence in each other to solve the Nagorno Karabakh problem”, the OSCE Chairmanship’s special representative for protracted conflicts Giedrius Cekuolis said in his interview to RFE/RL, APA reports. Cekuolis said what is very preoccupying is that the Armenian and Azerbaijani governments are not preparing their societies for the possibility of a negotiated solution of the conflict. “We think that the sides need to take measures to reduce tensions. My representatives have visited the region, myself, my foreign minister, everyone, so we are just looking and stressing the need for political will for a negotiated settlement of the conflict, strengthening the cease-fire regime, investigating skirmishes on the Line of Contact, for example, removing snipers a little bit, you know, and establishing a hotline, which is quite necessary and easy to do between local field commanders. And then probably also continue with confidence-building measures. We are living in the 21st century and so only a negotiated solution of the conflict is possible. I’m not an expert on military things, but it is clear that war will not resolve this conflict”.
