Karabakh conflict

Washington has set Azerbaijan a firm ultimatum: Karabakh independence
will be recognized, should Azerbaijan attempt to launch military
operations in NKR, Yeni Musavat Oppositional Azeri Party official
website reported on Tuesday, followed by other Azeri media
representatives.

Baku asserts US Deputy Assistant Secretary, Tina S. Kaidanow was
the one to express US position on Baku's increased militaristic
statements on Karabakh conflict settlement. Moreover, US assert
possessing information on Azerbaijan's secret preparations for a war.

In observer's opinion, Baku's military rhetoric is caused by the
fact Azerbaijan's territorial integrity is not included in agenda of
Armenia-Azerbaijan negotiations on Karabakh status, mediated by Russia,
US and France, NEWSru.com reports, according to PanArmenian.net.
