The chairman of the PACE Ad Hoc Committee on Nagorno-Karabakh, Lord Russel Jonhston has told ArmInfo's correspondent that he is dissatisfied with the committee's work. He said this after the committee's meeting, Trend reports.
He said that the committee members have had many meetings with the sides in order to better understand them. At first, he planned to invite the delegations to the meeting but they refused saying that they had no experience. Johnston said that the Committee has decided to monitor the sides' mutual charges and has agreed to visit Armenia, Azerbaijan and Nagorno-Karabakh, reports Trend.
At the same time, he noted that the compromise that will lead to the settlement requires necessary public opinion, which is not the case for the time being. The OSCE MG co-chairs keep saying that there is a certain compromise but nothing has changed so far. Speaking about the possible enlargement of the committee's mandate, Johnston said that the committee members live far from each other and find it hard to co-ordinate their work. The volume of work requires that the committee meet more often than four times a year, Johnson said.
