/PanARMENIAN.Net/ June 21 in Vienna Minister of Foreign Affairs of Moldova
Andrey Stratan delivered a speech on behalf of GUAM at the annual OSCE
conference on security dedicated to the 30-th anniversary of the Helsinki
Final Act and 15-th anniversary of the Paris Charter. In his words, OSCE
member-states should rate the lasting conflicts in Moldova, Abkhazia,
Georgia and Karabakh as a threat to stability and development on the
EuroAtlantic area and activate its role in settling the conflicts available.
GUAM (Georgia, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Moldova) called to resolve the conflicts
on the basis of `norms of jus gentium, principles of territorial integrity
and inviolability of state borders.’ The statement says that GUAM fully
supports the settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict with respect for
the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan and welcomes the activities within
the Prague process. At the same time stressing the importance of
`establishing cooperation between the Armenian and Azeri communities in
Nagorno Karabakh (the latter being a part on Azerbaijan) the organization
called upon the OSCE and the Minsk Group to be more active.’
