OSCE Secretary General Lamberto Zannier is concerned over the lack
of political will in Armenia and Azerbaijan to come to an agreement
to settle the Karabah conflict.
“There have been very robust efforts, political efforts to really try
to move things forward. The sides have been very close to agree to
a set of common principles on the basis of which they could build a
solution… But it’s not moving,” he said in an interview with RIA
Novosti on the margins of the 2012 OSCE Security Days conference
As to the recent incidents at the line of contact, OSCE head called
them a “worrying sign”.
He believes that work with public opinion and political forces in
Armenia and Azerbaijan is “one way of strengthening the ability of
leaders to make these difficult decisions.”
