As reported by the VestnikKavkaza, today is the 20th anniversary of the formal request for mediation in the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. The Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the OSCE Minsk Group countries issued a statement urging the parties of the conflict to show the political will necessary to achieve a solid and peaceful settlement. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, the U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe have signed joint statement, posted on the OSCE website.

"We urge the leaders of the parties as soon as possible to finalize work on a framework agreement and subsequent final decision on the basis of the Helsinki Final Act, principles of non-use threat or force, territorial integrity, self-determination and equality of peoples, points of the UN Charter, as well as norms and principles of international law, which would allow the region to move beyond the status quo to a more secure and prosperous future", said in a statement.

According to the statement, the peoples of the region have been hardest hit by the consequences of war, and any delay of the settlement will only prolong their burdens. "The new mature generation of the region does not receive current information about the conflict. For this reason, we urge the leaders of the parties to prepare the population for peace, not for war", the edition quoted the statement.

"As confirmed by the Presidents Medvedev, Obama and Sarkozy in a joint statement issued in Deauville May 24, 2011, only a negotiated settlement could lead to peace, stability and reconciliation; so any attempt to use force to resolve the conflict will bring instability to the region, which is too long suffering from uncertainty and insecurity", said in the document.
