PACE co-rapporteur for Azerbaijan Stefan Schennach expressed serious concern about recent escalation of the situation along the line of contact in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, which led to casualties on both sides, including among the civilian population.

S. Schennach said that he welcomed the ceasefire and urged "a speedy resumption of negotiations towards a peaceful settlement of this conflict."

The statement says that during his visit to Baku on April 6-8, co-rapporteur also met with the Speaker of Parliament, President of the Constitutional Court, the Ombudsman, the Minister of Justice, Attorney General, the head of the CEC, MPs, representatives of opposition parties, civil society, media representatives of Azerbaijan.
