STEPANAKERT. – OSCE Minsk Group, from our point of view, is one of the most effectively working international structures, Karabakh president Bako Sahakyan said during his meeting with students from Yerevan State University.
He is convinced that for many years hostilities have been avoided thanks to the OSCE Minsk Group efforts, Artsakh press reported.
“But, this does not mean that our fate depends on Minsk Group, and we are not capable of ensuring security of our country,” Sahakyan noted.
President Sahakyan noted that the parties should be grateful to the international community in the face of the OSCE Minsk Group for their work.
“Azerbaijani criticism against Minsk Group, arguments that it is necessary to revise the format, are attempts to cheat. The success of Azerbaijan, the current well-being, developing economy is directly related to the work of this group. But they lack the ability to give human assessments,” he emphasized.
NKR President assured that he will continue to work with colleagues as he did before.
“I am grateful to my colleagues at least for the fact that we live in relative peace. The country passed war, and we do not want it to repeat. We do not want resumption of hostilities,” Sahakyan added.
Highlighting the importance of the students’ visit to Artsakh, the president said that it is a good opportunity for them to get better familiarized with the second Armenian republic and to establish new friendly ties.
