There remain a number of outstanding issues related to or resulting from the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict which require comprehensive solutions. We are keen to see these outstanding matters settled quickly to ensure peace and security across the region. We continue to urge the sides to refrain from rhetoric that might exacerbate tensions.
