Yerevan/Mediamax/. OSCE Minsk Group Co-chairs will visit the region of
Nagorno-Karabakh conflict in the nearest future to continue
discussions on the basic principles of the settlement basing on
positive impulses of Sochi March 5 meeting.

Mediamax reports that the statement, published yesterday by the
mediators, reads that they were in Vienna on March 23-24, where they
briefed the Minsk Group and Secretary General Marc Perrin de
Brichambaut on their recent and upcoming activities as mediators of
the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

The Co-chairs noted that they will be making concrete efforts with
their interlocutors for implementation of the commitments, taken in
Sochi, concerning investigation of acts of ceasefire violation with
the participation of all sides.

`Noting the continuing importance of restraint by the sides both on
the ground and in public statements, the Co-Chairs consider
unacceptable any use or threat of force, including against civil
aircraft. In that respect, they strongly condemn the senseless cycle
of killings and retaliations along the front lines. They reiterated
their long-standing position that all sides should prepare their
populations for peace, not war’, the statement reads.
