BRUSSELS, Sept 28 (KUNA) -- NATO Monday expressed "deep concern" by reports of large-scale military hostilities between Armenia and Azerbaijan along the line of contact in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone.
"The sides should immediately cease hostilities, which have already caused civilian casualties," James Appathurai, NATO Secretary General's Special Representative for the Caucasus and Central Asia, said in a statement.
"There is no military solution to this conflict. The parties should resume negotiations towards a peaceful resolution.
NATO supports the efforts of the OSCE Minsk Group," he added. (end) nk.mah
