VILNIUS.- Secretary General of the European External Action Service Helga Schmid expressed concern about the lack of progress in resolving the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
“A further escalation of tensions would have dramatic consequences for the entire region. The European Union will therefore step up its engagement and support for the work of the Minsk Group Co-chairs,” she said addressing the OSCE Ministerial Council in Vilnius.
She also stressed importance of the EU’s monitoring presence on the ground in Georgia, the Armenian News-NEWS.am correspondent reports from Vilnius.
According to Helga Schmid, the EU also wants the OSCE to be a pillar of European security in the field of conventional arm control.
“To achieve this, we need greater transparency and predictability, and a modernised Vienna Document,” she said.
