Minsk Group must take urgent steps to pacify Azerbaijan, Armenian delegate to
PACE Naira Zohrabyan said in an interview to ArmInfo.
She said that the Azeri President's speech at the PACE
summer session was a call for a new war in Nagorno-Karabakh. She believes that
the lack of response from the OSCE Minsk Group was one of the factors that encouraged
the Azeris into new raids. "Everybody concerned are surprised to see no
response from the OSCE MG. The Azeris continue increasing their military budget
and buying arms from Russia. And
the OSCE MG must give an appropriate response to this," Zohrabyan said.
factor that, according to Zohrabyan, caused the last Azeri raid in Karvachar is
negligence by some Armenian military officials.
