Section IV. PREVENTION OF CONFLICTS AND RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES
Member states shall undertake all possible measures for the prevention of conflicts, first and foremost on an international and inter-confessional basis, which may give rise to the violation of human rights.
They shall render to each other, on the basis of mutual consent, assistance in the regulation of such conflicts, including under the framework of international organizations.
Member states of the Commonwealth will refrain from actions capable of causing damages to other member states and lead to the aggravation of possible disputes.
Member states will rigorously and in the spirit of cooperation make efforts towards the fair peaceful resolution of their disputes by way of negotiations or reach agreement on an appropriate alternative procedure for the resolving the dispute.
If the member states do not resolve a dispute using the means indicated in part two of this article, they may transfer it to the Council of Heads of States.
The Council of Heads of States shall have the authority at any stage of a dispute, the continuation of which could threaten the maintenance of peace or security in the Commonwealth, to recommend an appropriate procedure of methods for its resolution to the parties.
