Baku, Azerbaijan, Mar. 11
There is no military solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Richard Hoagland, the US co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group, said at a press conference in Baku Mar. 11.
He added that the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs will deliver exactly the same message next week in Yerevan.
“We, the three OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs, had long and substantive discussions with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev this morning,” Hoagland said. “We also appreciate the hospitality of Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov, with whom we also had long discussions over lunch.”
He added that the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs underlined the necessity of backing negotiations on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict’s settlement.
“We said the April 1, 2016 anniversary should be marked at the negotiations table,” Hoagland noted.
