Russia and US concerned about high tensions in Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone

Russia and the United States are concerned over the high tensions in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone.

According to Spokesman of Russia’s Foreign Ministry Alexander Lukashevich, the Ministry is worried to see the ceasefire regime broken on a regular basis.

“On Mar 1, it was broken once again and I am sorry to say that there were losses. Yesterday, Special Representative of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office Andrzej Kasprzyk monitored the contact line and has drafted a special report. I think those involved in the monitoring will give us more detailed information,” Lukashevich said.

He urged the parties to refrain from steps that may lead to escalated tensions. “We call on the parties to adhere to peaceful settlement,” Lukashevich said.

During a meeting with Deputy Prime Minister, Chairman of the State Committee for Work with Refugees and IDPs Ali Hasanov, US Ambassador to Azerbaijan Robert Cekuta said that his country shows a serious approach towards the Nagorno-Karabakh problem and is doing its best to solve it peacefully. “We are concerned over the recent escalation of tension on the frontline. The sides should refrain from the steps that lead to aggravation of the situation. In our turn, we try to achieve progress in the resolution of the conflict working either with the Azerbaijani side or the Armenian side”, he said.

According to Cekuta, over the last 20 years the US Government has provided Azerbaijan with humanitarian aid worth $115mn with a view to help the people suffering from the conflict.
