The recent meeting of the presidents of Azerbaijan and of Armenia in Geneva is important and to some extent encouraging, Gunther Bachler, Special Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office for the South Caucasus, said in his interview to the OSCE website.

He further stressed that for the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict there are some principles about final status on the table, but no real negotiation architecture.

Bächler noted that there was also drafted a non-paper on a mechanism for investigating ceasefire violations, another confidence-building measure that has yet to be implemented.

He reminded that the 2014 OSCE Swiss Chairmanship developed a non-paper on a structured negotiation process with all elements and details of a full-fledged negotiation process.

"We have presented it repeatedly to succeeding Chairmanships and all the people involved, and maybe one day they will use it," he said.
