OSCE Minks Group Asked Withdrawal Of All Mercenaries From Karabakh

The Co-Chair countries of the OSCE Minsk Group have called for the withdrawal of all foreign mercenaries from the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh in an official statement released on December 3.

The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe Minsk Group was formed by Russia, France and the U.S. in 1992 to encourage Armenia and Azerbaijan to reach a peaceful settlement on Nagorno-Karabakh.

In the new statement, the OSCE Minsk Group stressed its support for the peace deal brokered by Russia on November 9. The deal put an end to an large-scale Azerbaijani attack on Nagorno-Karabakh.

The group called upon Armenia and Azerbaijan to fully implement their obligations under the Russian-brokered deal to stabilize the region.

“The Co-Chair countries highlight the significance of measures taken by the Russian Federation, in agreement with Azerbaijan and Armenia, to guarantee the non-renewal of hostilities,” the statement reads. “They also call for the full and prompt departure from the region of all foreign mercenaries, and call upon all parties to facilitate this departure.”

The statement said Armenia and Azerbaijan should exchange prisoners, repatriate remains and facilitate the return of all refugees to Nagorno-Karabakh.

“The Co-Chair countries urge Armenia and Azerbaijan to take advantage of the current ceasefire to negotiate a lasting and sustainable peace agreement under the auspices of the Co-Chairs,” the statement adds.

Many ethnic Armenians of different nationalists volunteered to fight with the Armenian military in Nagorno-Karabakh. However, more than 2,000 Turkish-backed Syrian mercenaries, including a number of radicals, fought on Azerbaijan’s side in exchange for money.

The presence of Syrian mercenaries in Nagorno-Karabakh will not destabilize the region only but the entire Caucasus. Recent reports revealed that Azerbaijan is departing the mercenaries, despite Turkish plans to settle them there.

OSCE Minsk Group, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing! Works of Emanuel Microb who tries (without success) again to bring France on top of the situation. Geographically speaking Azerbaijan is NOT in EUROPE !


Geographically it is in Europe but only around half of its territory including the capital. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b1e6307244ef3ceedfefa87713b7a343a4981f20df9d13fb1ec15d61eb0746b3.png


Very strange map = EU private edition obviously . I have learned in school as kid that Europe is speeding on South till Caucasus mountains and on the East, Ural mountains . After those mountains is ASIA. On this stupid (false) map if you put straight line ( over the Caspian ) in that case even huge part of Kazakhstan is in Europe which is totally RIDICULOUS ! That is not geography but EU oil and gas “geography” = bollocks ! Looking for ecuse to get their hands on oil and gas of Central Asia (would be Europe) Still even on that map N. Karabakh is outside of limits of so called “Europe”.

There is a lot You dont see,beacuse Youdont check Yourt sources.

I also dont see why diaporas should not have some influece, So many was killed there and so many was farced to emigrate or did it themself.

It has been systematic witchhunting in that region since 1880 and at least up to that – and after that fx Kurds in Turkey.

They are about 5 million today because of the population growth, but when many left at and after WW1 about 1 mio left.

Here fx Turkey all included has 15 millions and Kurds in Turkey close to 5 million.

So Aramanians left actaully are many and still feel returning home.

Ypu might have heard about the palestinians – but that of course only is 72 years. Why dont they gto somewhere else and forget it. Somebody”stole” their land too. Didnt someone do that???

For almost 30 years Minsk group didnt come to any conclusion,solution in N-K with the dumb cover-story of problem can not be solved militarily. Here problem solved Azerbaijan side satisfied unless there is not any provocation with your support. Pointing out mercenaries is to get diplomatic advantage to be used against Turkey in future..

Its not about NK only. Armenia took several other regions too.
