CONIFA calls for peace in Nagorno-Karabakh

CONIFA abhor the use of military action as a method of resolving a dispute and believes in meaningful dialogue and communication.

CONIFA Global President, Per-Anders Blind, said, “CONIFA is saddened by the escalating situation in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. We call upon all players to consider a diplomatic solution to the problem and we therefore encourage dialogue among all players. War is always not a good option as there is no ultimate winner in any conflict.”

President Per-Anders Blind further called on all sides to urgently work towards a peaceful solution and to remind all sides of their obligations under international humanitarian law to protect civilians and civilian infrastructure.

“The thoughts of everyone in CONIFA are with the people affected by the conflict”.

CONIFA held the third edition of the European Football Cup in 2019 in the same Nagorno-Karabakh, otherwise styled as the Republic of Artsakh, one if its esteemed members in the Caucasus region.
