ICG Head: Renewed war would damage entire Caucasus


Sabine Freizer

The head of a well-regarded advice and analysis agency has said Azerbaijan should back off its repeated war rhetoric toward renewing hostilities with Armenia over Nagorno Karabakh.


International Crisis Group head Sabine Freizer also told Baku’s Turan Agency on Tuesday that snipers should be withdrawn from the line of contact, and that all sides in involved in the 24 -year -old dispute should allow the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs more power in finding a settlement.

“There will be no easy war,” Freizer said, and added that military actions would damage the South Caucasus in the eyes of the West from the point and hurt its position as an alternative transit zone.
