According to him, proactive position of the international participants in the settlement is even more important under the current conditions.

“I would like to express my gratitude for your involvement, monitoring of the situation, for the initiatives and ideas that we have outlined in the framework of recent times, and for the attempts to keep our interaction relevant at different levels.
