Oct 01: With the growing conflict in the CIS region where Muslim dominated Azerbaijan is fighting against Christian dominated Armenia over the Nagorno Karabakh regions, the Ministry of External Affairs released a statement as follows.
We have seen resumption of hostilities between Armenia and Azerbaijan in the Nagorno-Karabakh region since the early hours of 27 September 2020 resulting in casualties on both sides.
India is concerned over this situation which threatens regional peace and security. We reiterate the need for the sides to cease hostilities immediately, keep restraint and take all possible steps to maintain peace at the border. India believes that any lasting resolution of the conflict can only be achieved peacefully through diplomatic negotiations.
In this regard, we support OSCE Minsk Group’s continued efforts for a peaceful resolution of the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
