OREANDA-NEWS. Yerevan is ready to start negotiations on a ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh with the mediation of the countries of the Minsk Group of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).

This was reported by the Armenian Foreign Ministry on Facebook. “Armenia remains committed to the peaceful resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. While this aggression against Nagorno-Karabakh will continue to receive our strong and resolute response, we stand ready to engage with the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chair countries to re-establish a ceasefire regime based on the 1994–1995 agreements,” the message says.

The OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs are the United States, Russia and France. On October 1, the presidents of these countries, Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin and Emmanuel Macron, issued a joint statement on the fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh. They called on Armenia and Azerbaijan to immediately stop hostilities and to sit down at the negotiating table without putting forward additional conditions under the aegis of the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs.
