Belarus advocates for peaceful settlement of Nagorny Karabakh conflict

MINSK, 2 April (BelTA) – Belarus holds firm for a gradual de-escalation of the conflict in Nagorny Karabakh, reads the statement of the Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in connection with the events regarding Nagorny Karabakh, BelTA informs.

“The Republic of Belarus is deeply concerned with the renewal of active military operation with the use of heavy armament in the region of Nagorny Karabakh,” the ministry said.

As the Minsk OSCE Group member state, Belarus continuously advocate for a peaceful de-escalation of the conflict in compliance with generally recognized principles and norms of international law, first of all on the basis of the respect and maintenance of the sovereignty, territorial integrity and inviolability of borders of the countries, and also in line with relevant the UN Security Council resolutions and the OSCE decisions.

“We call upon the parties to immediately agree on a ceasefire and avoid the actions that may lead to the escalation of tensions and human losses. We expect that the Co-Chairmen of the Minsk OSCE Group with the support of all friendly to Azerbaijan and Armenia nations will use its authority and influence to assure de-escalation and return to the search for solutions of the Karabakh problem at the negotiating table,” the ministry’s statement says.
