The release of Ramil Safarov, will almost certainly set back efforts to find a solution to the Nagorno- Karabakh conflict and efforts to build up trust between the peoples of the region, EUobserver says in its "Nagorno-Karabakh: on the knife's edge" article.
"In the current setting of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the possibilities of promoting peace from the outside are limited. International pressure and mediation have predictably and repeatedly hit a dead end. The official peace process has maintained a self- centered approach and insisted for too long on a confidential and secretive structure for the talks, ignoring the need to work with the public, to include all the relevant actors and stimulate significant
changes at the level of local people caught up in the conflict," the source says.
