YEREVAN, MARCH 29, ARMENPRESS: After the meeting with Armenian Foreign
Minister Edward Nalbandyan, Russian Co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group
Yuri Merzlyakov speaking of Madrid Principles noted that what is made
are not supplementations, but proposals connected with the not-agreed
points, just in new formulations. There have always been similar
working proposals. According to him, currently the negotiations are
in an important stage.

"We have already received the proposals of the Armenian party and
discussed with the Armenian foreign minister only some days ago in
Moscow and Paris. Taking this opportunity we discussed this and a
number of other issues with Bako Sahakyan," the Russian co-chair of
the OSCE Minsk Group noted after the meeting with the NKR president.

French Co-chair Bernard Fassier in his turn noted that the war is
not a variant of solution of the issue. "We are inclined to think
that issue is not impossible to solve through a war," he stressed.
