He recalled that the OSCE Minsk Group is a mediator in the settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict: "The Minsk Group is directly involved in the settlement. We are trying to strengthen the mediator role of the organization in this matter. To achieve a settlement, the effort of all political forces is needed. And I hope that the Minsk Group will also be able to do everything possible in this matter."
