NOVEMBER 29, 2011
Today, OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs Bernard Fassier (France), Robert
Bradtke (USA), Igor Popov (Russia) and Personal Representative
of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office Andrzej Kasprzyk crossed the
Armenian-Azerbaijani interstate border on foot, in the neighborhood
of Armenian Kayan and Azerbaijani Jafarli villages.
Armenpress reports, citing the Azerbaijani mass media, that after
crossing the border, the co-chairs answered journalists' questions.
"We have already visited Armenia, met with the President, Foreign and
Defense Ministers. This time we crossed the border not in Karabakh,
but we crossed the state border of Armenia and Azerbaijan," said
Bernard Fassier, adding that the tension in that part is weaker than
in Karabakhi-Azerbaijani line of contact. "We will leave for Baku
by a helicopter. There we will hold meetings with the Azerbaijani
President, Foreign and Defense Ministers," said the French Co-Chair.
