The regional visit of the OSCE Minsk group co-chairs is positive,
as it proved once again that the talks will go on with that formats,
according to Alexander Margarov, political scientist, head of the
Institute of CIS States Armenian branch. He said today at a meeting
with journalists that the fact the parties tend to keep the negotiation
format and partake in the process of talks is positive as well and
it will bring to some positive results.

'Actually, the negative side is that we do not have a document,
drafted by mutual consent of the parties,' the speaker said. He noted
that it is necessary to draft a basic document, in which the points
and principles, about which the parties have reached an agreement,
will be involved. The OSCE Minsk group co-chairs met February 9 with
the RA president, RA foreign minister and RA defense minister in
Yerevan. Because of bad weather, the co-chairs did not visit Artsakh.

Now the mediators are in Azerbaijan.
