/PanARMENIAN.Net/ "A new war between Armenia and Azerbaijan is out
of the question. The new war will create new problems, resulting in
new army of refugees and deaths of people," Swedish deputy, OSCE
PA President Goran Lennmarker says in his report over the Nagorno
Karabakh. Lennmarker thinks the time does not work in favor of
conflicting parties.

"The Nagorno Karabakh conflict must be settled not forcefully or
applying double standards, but in framework of the international law
norms and European values. The European model of conflict settlements,
which relies on human rights respect, may serve for settling conflicts
in the South Caucasus, including the Nagorno Karabakh problem. In
the issue of settling the South Caucasian conflicts the experience
of Baltic states also can be used. The Nagorno Karabakh conflict is
a heritage of the past: Azerbaijan and Armenia, that for a long time
suffered from occupation and animosity, must be sure that historical
realities will never happen again," says the report.

Touching upon Armenia, Lennmarker thinks this country is particularly
concerned over its national security.

"This country having bitter experience from Ottoman and Russian
Empires and the USSR, is seriously concerned over its national
security." Lennmarker writes the following about Azerbaijan, "The main
thing that worries this country is injustice. A very important part
of the country is occupied and over 1 million people became refugees
and displaced. That’s why Azeris consider themselves as victims of
occupation." "Though the both parties speak about historical roots
of the conflict, they differently interpret its gist. Azerbaijan
and Armenia must reach to a common denominator on the event that
took place in the past. It is very important for reaching justice,"
the report underlines, APA reports.
