Czech Senate VP says peace only solution to Karabakh conflict
Vice-President of the Senate of the Czech Republic Jiri Sestak believes that only solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is peaceful one.
Asked how could Prague contribute to the resolution of the long-lasting Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Sestak noted that positive contribution of the Czech Republic in this matter may be an encouragement to this path and helping to achieve a peaceful solution.
For more than two decades Armenia and Azerbaijan are in a state of war following Yerevan’s aggression, ethnic cleansing policy and illegal territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenia keeps under control over 20 percent of Azerbaijan's internationally recognized territory, including Nagorno-Karabakh and seven adjacent regions in a brutal war in the early 1990s.
Despite a fragile ceasefire agreement signed in 1994, Armenia keeps violating armistice with Azerbaijan by regular provocations on the contact line of troops.
