OSCE Sees Precedent between Kosovo and Nagorno-Karabakh Conflicts
Azerbaijan, Baku, 6 March /corr. Trend S.Agayeva / The representative of the OSCE sees precedent between Kosovo and Nagorno-Karabakh problems. "Irrespective of the difference between Kosovo and Nagorno-Karabakh conflicts, the Kosovo model of settling the conflict may be a precedent for the Nagorno-Karabakh problem," the chief consultant of the OSCE, Dov Lints, said in Baku on 6 March, while giving a speech at the international seminar of NATO Parliamentary Assembly which took place in Azerbaijan's capital.
"The problems should be resolved. Otherwise new victims would appear and actions with the separatist mood would be carried out," the OSCE envoy said.
According to him, the conflicting sides need to sit behind the table of talks and fully isolate the separatist-mood forces.
On 17 Feb, Kosovo declared its independence. Belgrade described the declaration illegal and called on the international community to annul it, as it contrasts with the international law.
