There is an understanding that, first of all, the armed forces must return to the barracks. Yes, security is important. But also for Azerbaijan, its population in Karabakh.

We turned to the co-chairs to prepare a report on assessing the situation and resolving the issue of security. This requires serious substantive negotiations.
