Minsk Group Co-Chairs call for fully and expeditiously completing the exchange process for all prisonersand detainees

The Co-Chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group welcome Azerbaijan's release of Armenian detainees Robert Vardanyan, Samvel Shukhyan, and Seryan Tamrazyan and call on both parties to fully and expeditiously complete the exchange process for all prisoners, detainees, and remains, and to respect their obligations to ensure the humane treatment of detainees. 

In a released statement on Wednesday by Igor Popov of Russia, Stephane Visconti of France, and Andrew Schofer of the US, the Co-Chairs recall their 13 April statement,  urge the sides to exchange all data necessary to conduct effective demining of conflict regions and to lift restrictions on access to Nagorno-Karabakh, including for representatives of international humanitarian organizations.  "The Co-Chairs encourage the sides to take concrete steps to create an atmosphere of mutual trust conducive to long-lasting peace by addressing the remaining areas of concern outlined in the 13 April statement of the Co-Chairs.  This includes resuming high-level political dialogue under the auspices of the Co-Chairs at the earliest opportunity.
