Dimitrij Rupel: we urge Azerbaijan to stop warlike rhetoric

The European Union stands against resolution of conflicts by the use of force, Slovenian Foreign Minister Dimitrij Rupel told a news conference in Yerevan. “The EU speaks out for building an atmosphere of trust between the parties to conflict. For this purpose, the mandate of EU Envoy for the South Caucasus, Mr Peter Semneby, was expanded. We call on Azerbaijan to put an end to warlike statements. The Nagorno Karabakh problem needs political will but not weapons,” he said.Touching upon Nagrono Karabakh’s participation in the negotiations, Mr Rupel said, “The OSCE Minsk Group format doesn’t provide for participation of Nagorno Karabakh in talks yet.”
