OSCE MG CO-CHAIR COUNTRIES SPECIFIED NO PARTY HINDERING TALKS
June 19, 2012 – 14:13 AMT
PanARMENIAN.Net – The statement issued by Presidents of the OSCE Minsk
Group Co-Chair countries is important for some points, editor-in-chief
of Aztag Beirut-based daily said.
According to Shahan Kandaharian, the statement reiterates mediators’
support for OSCE Minsk Group format, which neutralizes Azerbaijani
attempts to transfer the conflict resolution to another platform.
“The statement also reaffirms balanced focus on three principles:
non-use of force, peoples’ right to self-determination and territorial
integrity. In this context, Obama’s commitment to the principles runs
counter to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s report, which
omitted the right of nations to self-determination. Clinton’s “new
approaches” were confirmed neither in the presidents’ statements,
nor during the meeting between Armenian and Azerbaijani foreign
ministers,” Mr. Kandaharian told PanARMENIAN.Net
“The statement reaffirms the standpoint, according to which both
countries bear responsibility for the war rhetoric and use of force,
with no party specified as trouble maker,” he said.
