"There are no news regarding a settlement of the Nagornyy Karabakh
conflict," Armenian President Robert Kocharyan told a briefing in
Yerevan today.

The meeting between the Armenian and Azerbaijani foreign ministers
which took place in Prague on 16 April was mainly for familiarization
purposes, Kocharyan said.

Speaking about his meeting on 19 April with the new US co-chairman of
the OSCE Minsk Group, Kocharyan said that Steven Mann "is well aware
of the situation and developments in the region".
