Greece supports an immediate termination of violence between Azerbaijan and Armenia in Nagorno-Karabakh and believes that involvement of third parties in the conflict should end, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Tuesday.

“The secretary-general and I have also discussed the recent dramatic developments in Nagorno-Karabakh and the continuing bloodshed, which — over and above, it’s a humanitarian dimension — is a cause of destabilization in the region. We are in favour of immediate termination of hostilities, as well as foreign interventions that support them,” Mitsotakis told a press conference alongside NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg in Athens.

Greece supports calls for ceasefire voiced by the OSCE Minsk Group that seeks to peacefully settle the decades-long Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the prime minister reiterated.
