/PanARMENIAN.Net/ From the very beginning the participants of the
Dartmouth process understood that the settlement of the Nagorno
Karabakh conflict is impossible without the participation of
representatives of Karabakh, co-chair of the Dartmouth Conference
working group for regional conflicts Harold Saunders stated during
round-table discussions in Stepanakert, reported the information and
analytical department of the NKR MFA. The discussion participants
considered the draft framework agreement on peaceful process
in Armenia, Azerbaijan and Nagorno Karabakh. In his words, the
deadlock doesn't benefit to either of the parties. "Bridges should
be established between sides. The document maintains a series of
steps targeted at peace building. This is not a substitute for formal
talks but only an addition," the American diplomat said noting that
the Dartmouth Conference enjoys good relations with the OSCE Minsk
Group Co-chairs.
