We should once more confirm our devotion to the principles of the Helsinki Final Act, recognize the principle of territorial integrity and sovereignty of states against the background of the recent happenings,” Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov said at the meeting OSCE Ministerial Council, APA’s special correspondent reports from Helsinki. The minister said OSCE had special role in connection with the conflicts.
“We should use the organization’s experience and potential in the settlement of conflicts, management after conflicts and other issues. We are a bit concerned over OSCE’s tendency to focus only human rights. We support more all-round and balanced agenda,” he said. The Foreign Minister noted that the Nagorno Karabakh conflict was a serious source of instability and added that the Moscow Declaration signed on November 2 was the important document. “Both presidents have stated that they make efforts for political settlement of the conflict within the framework of the international legal norms. The solution process should create positive economic situation in whole region. The declaration also envisages the strengthening of mutual trust. One of the issues of primary significance is to maintain normal life in Karabakh for both Armenians and Azerbaijanis and establish cooperation and communication. I hope that Armenians also understand and support our position”.
