Great Britain’s ambassador to Azerbaijan Andrew Tacker said that his country might get involved in the Karabagh conflict regulation process. In an interview with Azerbaijani news agency Turan the ambassador said a representative of his country might be included in the OSCE Minsk group, the only international organization authorized to help the conflicting sides to arrive to a peace formula.
Speaking about the prospects for regulation of the more than a decade-long opposition between Azerbaijan and Armenia over Karabagh the ambassador said that his country believes that the mutually acceptable peace formula should be sought by the sides themselves.
A Baku-based 525 Gazet writes that Greta Britain is one of the leading states in the OSCE, covering some 10 percent of the organization’s expenses. The ambassador also implied that international peace-keeping forces might be deployed in the conflict zone. “Great Britain’s interests in the South Caucasus are linked to its place in the European continent and the role of its NATO ally Turkey in the region,” he said.
