Establishment of Peace and Stability in S.Caucasus Impossible without Settlement of Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict : G8 Foreign Ministers
The Chairman of the informal meeting of the 'Great 8' foreign ministers stated in Potsdam that the establishment of peace and stability in the S. Caucasus is impossible without the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict was not included in the agenda at the meeting.
"The G8 foreign ministers took a unified position on the importance of the resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh for the establishment of peace and stability in the region," the statement read.
The G8 foreign ministers support the efforts by the OSCE Minsk Group and calls on the Presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan to boost their efforts directed at achieving unanimity on major principles proposed by the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs.
"In this respect we welcome the intentions of both Presidents at a meeting during the CIS informal summit in St. Petersburg on 9 July, 2007 and call on them to reach an agreement on the major principles so as to open a path towards the peaceful resolution of the conflict," RIA Novosti reports.
