“There is an obvious need to continue efforts that will finally lead to the sustainable solution of the issue. Peaceful resolution of all outstanding issues related to the Jammu and Kashmir issue, is of particular importance also in terms of ensuring peace and security in the wider South Asian region,” noted the minister.

As a member of the OIC Contact Group on Jammu and Kashmir, Azerbaijan considers this format to be an important and useful mechanism to review the state of implementation by OIC Member States of their obligations deriving from respective OIC decisions, he added.

“Azerbaijan will continue its active engagement in the work of the Contact Group with a firm conviction that peace and security will soon be established in the region,” Mammadyarov said.
