OSCE MG co-chairs to update Azerbaijan, Armenia about proposals over prisoners of war
The OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs will update the parties of the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict about the proposals in connection with prisoners of war during the visit to the region in late May, the Russian Foreign Ministry told Trend on May 23.
The Russian Foreign Ministry was responding to the question on Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s statement about exchanging prisoners of war all for all, as a way of establishing an atmosphere of trust in conflict zones and the projection on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement.
The ministry reminded that the presidents of Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan talked about strengthening of the confidence-building measures in the military field during the trilateral meeting in October 2010 in Astrakhan.
"For this purpose, an agreement was reached on the exchange of prisoners of war with the assistance of the co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group and the International Committee of the Red Cross,” the ministry said. "Baku and Yerevan agreed to follow this approach in the future, taking into account only the humanitarian nature of such issues. We think that this agreement remains relevant. The consultations on the exchange of prisoners of war are underway."
The Russian Foreign Ministry stressed that to improve the conditions of stay of prisoners of war on the territory of the parties, during the recent ministerial meeting in Moscow the Azerbaijani and Armenian foreign ministers confirmed their readiness on a reciprocal basis to take measures to allow relatives to visit them.
"The OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs prepared the corresponding proposals on this issue and they intend to update Azerbaijan and Armenia about these proposals during their visit to the region in late May," the ministry said.
