Risk of renewed violence in Karabakh conflict remains: UN Secertary General
(Armradio) – “The term “frozen conflict”, often used to describe conflicts in Europe, is misleading,” UN Secretary General António Guterres said at a Security Council open debate on Europe’s protracted conflicts.
He pointed out that “until peace agreements are signed and implemented, the risk of renewed violence remains, as seen last April in Nagorno-Karabakh.”
“The United Nations supports the OSCE’s Minsk Group and urges parties to conflict to fully implement agreed conflict-prevention measures, show greater political will and renew a sustainable and comprehensive negotiation process,” the UN Secretary General said.
António Guterres said the Council was seized of many conflict situations in Europe, noting that the Organization was working with such regional mechanisms as the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and the European Union in tackling them.
