The Karabakh conflict can be resolved solely through the mediation of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Minsk Group, Russian Ambassador to Armenia Ivan Volinkin told reporters, on Thursday.




He stated this when he was asked about Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu’s statements at the ongoing autumn session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).


“The problem can be resolved only through the mediation of the Minsk Group,” stressed the ambassador. “No irrelevant country can have an impact, participation.”


The Russian diplomat recalled that the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs will visit the region toward the end of the current month. They plan to be in Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh), as well.
