“Azerbaijan has recovered much territory. I see the impact on people here and completely understand the emotions,” Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland James Sharp said in an interview to APA.
Mr. Diplomat noted that from a foreign policy perspective, they would have preferred the Minsk Group Co-Chairs to have been involved in negotiations on the ceasefire, and would prefer a multilateral PKO (Peacekeeping Operations): “Perhaps also under the OSCE. But we understand that decisions were being made at speed during a conflict, and involved hard choices for both sides.
So yes, the situation is very different. And we very much support the President’s vision of the countries of the Caucasus cooperating together on economic, transport issues, etc. Here too we very much favour the Minsk Group Co-Chairs being brought back to act as facilitators.”
