Statement of the Estonia-Azerbaijan parliamentary group of the Riigikogu
The Estonia-Azerbaijan parliamentary group of the Riigikogu have been following with the deepest concern the escalation of the military conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabakh, in which many innocent people have already lost their lives.
We stand for the resolution of the conflict in accordance with norms and principles of international law. We reiterate once again our full support for sovereignty, territorial integrity and inviolability of internationally recognized borders of all countries of the region.
However, given the gravity of the current situation, we call on both parties to the conflict to cease fire, re-establish truce and return to the negotiation table, thus spearheading all efforts mediated by the Co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, based on the principle of the OSCE Helsinki Final Act and its implementation elements, and thereby providing the new impetus to the peaceful resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict being the most important factor for stability and development of the entire region.
