After consultations held on 29 January 1993, the President of the Security Council made the following statement to the media on behalf of the members of the Council:
The members of the Security Council express their deep concern at the devastating effect of interruptions in the supply of goods and materials, in particular energy supplies, to Armenia and to the Nakhichevan region of Azerbaijan. They note with serious concern that these interruptions, combined with an unusually harsh winter, have brought the economy and infrastructure of the region to near collapse and created a real threat of starvation.
The members of the Council urge all countries in a position to help to facilitate the provision of fuel and humanitarian assistance and call on governments in, the region, with a view to preventing a further deterioration of the humanitarian situation, to allow humanitarian supplies to flow freely, in particular fuel to
Armenia and to the Nakhichevan region of Azerbaijan.
The members of the Council reaffirm their full support for the CSCE efforts, designed to bring the parties together and achieve peace in the region. They call upon the parties to agree to an immediate ceasefire, and an early resumption of talks within the CSCE framework.
The members of the Security Council will keep the matter under consideration
