Armenia expects no change in Karabakh talks with new US mediator

9 Apr 04


Armenian Foreign Minister Vardan Oskanyan has said that the
replacement of the US co-chairman of the OSCE Minsk Group on the
settlement of the Nagornyy Karabakh conflict will have no impact on
the talks. This was announced by Vardanyan in an interview with an
Arminfo correspondent.

According to him, the individual's degree of activity and persistency
of his actions is important. "But, on the whole, I think that there
will be no specific changes from the political viewpoint," Vardanyan
said. He added that the new OSCE Minsk Group co-chairman would
continue the policy which to some extent reflects the foreign policies
of the co-chairs of the Minsk Group.
