Karabakh Status Quo Doesn’t Bring Stability, Says Bradtke

US Minsk Group co-chairman, Robert Bradtke

NEW YORK—“The Karabakh conflict is not frozen, but is a continuing one,” Robert Bradtke, US Co-Chairman of the OSCE Minsk Group stated at a conference on Nagorno-Karabakh conflict at Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington.

“The people in the region deserve a better future with stability and prosperity. And the people should get chances for such future,” Bradtke stated.

The Nagorno-Karabakh problem doesn’t always get the attention it is supposed to get, Bradtke, who recently returned from the region, said, adding that the conflict is not frozen, but is a continuing one, and the situation isn’t stable yet.

“This conflict doesn’t get covered in newspapers often, but I can assure you, that the US is devoted to peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict,” Bradtke said, stressing that the status quo, even if it sounds good for someone, doesn’t give stability.

US works closely with its Russian and French partners on all levels to achieve peace as soon as possible, the US Co-Chairs stated.

“Three meetings were held in Sochi, Saint Petersburg and Astrakhan, when we had a chance to talk to the leaders of the region,” he said adding that all the sides share the idea of not letting any other war break out in the South Caucasus.

    Sure it doesn’t. Remember: a ceasefire-treaty is not a peace treaty…
