YEREVAN. - France does not rule out deployment of peacekeepers in
Nagorno-Karabakh, said Arnaud Dubien, director of the Institute of
International and Strategic Relations.

Dubien commented on possible interference of France or the EU in
Karabakh peace process.

"As to military intervention in Karabakh, it is a different thing.

First, OSCE's efforts to resolve the conflict diplomatically continue.

Secondly, there is no war in Nagorno-Karabakh. France does not rule
out deployment of peacekeepers within the framework of international
peacekeeping operation but it will be done in a different context,
in another way" he said.

According to Dubien, situation in Libya and Ivory Coast, for example,
was differed from that of Kosovo.

"UN Security Council's resolutions were adopted prior to operations
in Libya and Ivory Coast," he said adding that it was not done in
case of Kosovo.
