In his first address as OSCE Parliamentary Assembly (PA) President, Georgian parliamentarian George Tsereteli touched upon the conflict resolution issue among the others.
As the OSCE PA reported in a press release, a key focus of President Tsereteli’s remarks was on the need to redouble the efforts into resolving conflicts, including the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
“Whether we’re talking about the conflicts in Ukraine, about Nagorno-Karabakh, or about the conflict in Georgia and occupation of territories – all of these have tragic human consequences each and every day,” he said. “This must continue to be our focus.”
He noted one of his priorities as OSCE PA president is to ensure that the OSCE is fully prepared to address these issues.
“One of my priorities as President is to ensure that the OSCE is fully equipped to address these challenges, to uphold the founding principles of the Helsinki Final Act, promote common values, and lend the PA’s contribution to resolving conflicts,” the president said.
