An expert at Russian Academy of Sciences' Oriental Studies Institute
believes Madrid Principles will be the focus of the oncoming meeting
between Armenian, Russian and Azerbaijani Foreign Ministers, as
suggested by April 14 OSCE Minsk Group statement.

As Andrei Areshev told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter, the negotiation
process is still monitored by the U.S. which doesn't conceal its
interest to Karabakh conflict settlement on certain terms. "In
this situation, Russian diplomacy is up against a complicated task,
considering the standstill the talks are in."

"Agreements to achieve of stability on the front line, as well as
development of mechanisms preventing large-scale collisions would be
the best way out," the expert said.
