BERLIN (Armradio) — The informal meeting of OSCE Foreign Ministers in Potsdam tomorrow will discuss the Karabakh issue, OSCE Chairman-in-Office, German Foreign Minister Frank Walter- Steinmeier has said in a statement issued ahead of the meeting.

“In the crisis-ridden world of today, the OSCE is perhaps more important than ever – in crisis management in eastern Ukraine, Transnistria, Nagorno-Karabakh and other conflicts in Europe as well as in the maintenance of peace and security,” he said.

Mr. Steinmeier added that reference will be made to the strengthening of fundamental freedoms and democratic standards and will address new challenges such as international terrorism or the consequences of flight and migration.

An important issue on the agenda is the arms control. “I think now is the right time to gain a momentum for more transparency, risk prevention and confidence building here,” the OSCE Chairman-in-Office said.

Meanwhile, the Co-Chairs of the Minsk Group of OSCE on Nagorno-Karabakh will hold consultations in Moscow on September 8, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday, TASS reports.

“They will discuss important issues of the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement, special attention is planned to be focused on the progress of the implementation of the agreements made at the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement summits in Vienna and St. Petersburg,” she said.
