Germany holds no sufficient data on who is to blame for the latest escalation in the Karabakh conflict zone, German Ambassador to Armenia Matthias Kiesler told reporters, when commenting on the fact that the conflict escalation by Azerbaijan has not been assessed so far. Ambassador Kiesler recalled that the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs have already paid visits to both Baku and Yerevan. So, the ambassador points out the need to abstain from early conclusions and to wait for the results of the OSCE MG investigation.
Mr. Kiesler noted that the German Embassy has been keeping a close eye on the latest developments along the line of contact of the Nagorno-Karabakh and Azerbaijani armed forces, and has been reporting the situation to Berlin. He said that the resumption of armed hostilities is certainly a step backwards in the Karabakh peace process. The priority task now, he said, is to maintain the ceasefire in the conflict zone.
The German ambassador also pointed out that the Embassy follows the Armenian media reports about the numerous facts of mutilation of the Armenian servicemen’s bodies. The OSCE chairmanship attentively follows these reports, but there are no mechanisms yet on how to work further, he said
