International conference held within the framework of Women for Peace
program is postponed, Rimma Arakelyan, head of Council of relatives
of missing servicemen (participants of Karabakh war) told Armenian
News-NEWS.am. The reasons are not reported.

The conference scheduled for May 5 had to take place in
Nagorno-Karabakh. Belgian senator Dominique Tilmans heads the program.

Earlier Azerbaijani participant Tanzila Rustamhanli rejected an
invitation under the pressure of Azerbaijani authorities.

Several meetings have already been held. However, the Azerbaijani side
hampers any attempts to cooperate within the framework of the program.

Armenia's representative Rimma Arakelyan failed to attend the meeting
held in Baku last December due to Azerbaijani side's failure to
confirm security guarantees on time.

Another meeting is scheduled for late May in Tbilisi.
