Following OSCE Summit in Astana, Azerbaijan will seek shifting
Karabakh conflict resolution to another structure and format,
Vladimir Karapetyan, Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee,
Armenian National Congress (ANC) told the reporters on December 6.

Asked what structure and format are in question, Karapetyan said:
"Obviously, OSCE hinders Azerbaijan in its efforts to put forward the
Karabakh peace process, as it is based on the principle of consensus.

The OSCE Summit in Astana proved that any document is impossible to
be signed, if it is a matter of controversy. Therefore, OSCE cannot
provide a favorable environment for Azerbaijan to bring forward its
proposals," Karapetyan stressed.

According to him, Azerbaijan will seek shifting the Karabakh peace
process to such international agencies, where decision-making is put
to the vote.

"Azerbaijan will probably submit a draft resolution on Karabakh in
the next session of UN General Assembly. I think this time it will
contain more dangerous provisions than the previous one," he noted.

Karapetyan emphasized that report of OSCE Field Assessment Mission,
to be presented to OSCE Permanent Council in January 2012, also poses
a threat to Armenia.

"In my opinion, the report will bring on a major headache to the
Armenian side," ANC member underscored.
