Swedish-Armenian MP, Arin Karapet, Presses Swedish FM to Hold Azerbaijan Accountable, As Chair of the OSCE.

As Sweden takes over the OSCE chairmanship, Swedish MP of Armenian descent, Arin Karapet, looks to make sure Sweden’s Foreign Minister Ann Linde will hold Azerbaijan accountable for their continued aggression against Armenia and Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) in addition to the war crimes and POWs still in captivity.

Karapet adds, “Now is the time to not only stand up and warmly speak about human rights -But to also act for them,” while briefing FM Ann Linde on the situation in the South Caucasus.

With the advent of Sweden’s chairmanship of the OSCE three weeks ago, Linde’s programme highlighted, ”The ongoing conflicts and crises in the OSCE area, such as the situations we see in Belarus, in and around Ukraine and the increased tensions around Nagorno-Karabakh [which] require the continued, common attention of our organization. This will naturally be on our agenda at the beginning of the year.”

“Sweden is honoured to take over the Chair of the OSCE at a time when our region needs to come together to focus on our common security, based on the principles and commitments we all have made,” said Ann Linde, Sweden’s Foreign Minister and the new OSCE Chairperson-in-Office. “While conflicts and political crises continue to challenge security, international law, democratic principles and sustainable development, the OSCE can serve as a crucial multilateral platform to tackle these challenges and build stronger societies together.”

“Our priorities as Chair will be to emphasize the fundamental tasks of the OSCE; defending the European security order, upholding the OSCE concept of comprehensive security and to contribute to resolving the conflicts in our region.
