But there are some conditions that would enable parties to restore the order and peace in the region. Firstly, third parties need to keep an equal distance and avoid biased statements. We need to make sure that this Assembly has an impartial attitude toward the dispute... 19/06/2023 | 15:41:36 Dear Mister President, First of all I thank both rapporteurs.
