The Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Linde, S, Armenia and Azerbaijan are now calling for the peace talks to be resumed.
– The development is of course very worrying and I very much regret the deaths and there are many civilian deaths. The most important thing now is that the fighting end immediately and the parties return to the negotiating table, she told Swedish Radio. According to Ann Linde, it is also important that “no other countries are involved in this conflict”. The statement comes after reports that Turkey sent military aid to Azerbaijan.
Linde has been in contact with the foreign ministers of both countries, who have different views on who is responsible for escalating the conflict.
