Latvia hopes for Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement within OSCE Minsk Group’s proposals

Latvia hopes for the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict to be resolved peacefully within the proposals of the OSCE Minsk Group; Latvian Prime Minister Valdis Dombrovskis told media in Baku today. "We hope and insist on the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict by peaceful means within the Minsk Group's proposals," Dombrovskis said.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and 7 surrounding districts.
Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France, and the U.S. - are currently holding the peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.

Latvian Prime Minister leads a large delegation of around 80 entrepreneurs who took part in the Azerbaijani-Latvian business forum today. Dombrovskis said at the forum that the political dialogue between Azerbaijan and Latvia promotes the development of economic relations between the two countries. The purpose of his visit, which will last until November 30, is to expand bilateral cooperation and to attract new investments.

Latvian Agriculture Minister: EU agricultural policies must support production

Ahead of this week's European Union Agriculture and Fisheries Council meeting in Brussels, Latvian Agriculture Minister Laimdota Straujuma said that it is important for the EU's common agricultural policies to be orientated towards the market and production.

''I will emphasize during the meeting that the EU's agricultural policies must be orientated towards the market and production, so that farmers are less dependent on subsidies and can be more elastic in adapting to market demands,'' Straujuma said. As reported, from today until November 29, Agriculture Minister Laimdota Straujuma will be participating in a European Union Agriculture and Fisheries Council meeting in Brussels.
 
The Council will continue to discuss reforms to various Common Agricultural Policy elements – direct payments, rural development and the Single Common Market Organization. The use of lactic acid to reduce contamination on bovine carcasses, which Latvia does not support, will also be on the agenda. The Council will also try to reach a political agreement on fishing opportunities for certain deep-sea stocks for 2013 and 2014, which Latvia approves of.
