    OSCE, updated on the mediation of the OSCE Minsk Group in settlement
    of the Armenia-Azerbaijan, Nagorny Karabakh conflict. Expressing with
    deep regret that the Minsk Group's activity has not yielded any
    conclusion the Minister stated that he hopes for Slovenia's efforts
    in this direction as future OSCE chair. Minister Elmar Mammadyarov
    reminded the UN Security Council's four Resolutions on the question

    Azerbaijan and his country, Mr. Yanez Lenatrziz said that he would
