The Co-Chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group (Ambassadors Igor Popov of the Russian Federation, James Warlick of the United States of America, and Pierre Andrieu of France) met with Foreign Minister of Armenia Edward Nalbandian 5 February in Munich. The Personal Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office, Ambassador Andrzej Kasprzyk, also participated in the meeting, APA reports

They urged the Armenian Minister to show more flexibility: “We noted with alarm the rising number of incidents along the Line of Contact and Armenia-Azerbaijan border, including in civilian areas. We also discussed with the Minister proposed measures to reduce the likelihood of such incidents. In particular, it is imperative for the sides to take steps to prevent a repeat of the November 12 helicopter downing.”

In the press statement co-chairs touched the importance of implementing the Presidents' agreement to exchange data on missing persons under the aegis of the ICRC: “This data exchange can build trust between the sides and facilitate the reconciliation process. In addition, we called for the resumption of presidential dialogue at the earliest opportunity.”

The Co-Chairs note that they will travel to the region later this month.
