Yerevan, 28 April: The only reason why Nagornyy Karabakh is not
participating in the negotiating process is Azerbaijan's refusal to
hold a dialogue with Karabakh, Armenian Foreign Minister Vardan
Oskanyan said at Artsakh [Karabakh] State University in Stepanakert
today.

He said that Nagornyy Karabakh will definitely be involved in the
talks after an agreement is reached on the main principles of the
settlement.

"If Azerbaijan speaks out against Karabakh's involvement in the talks
again, then Armenia will not be responsible for the future fate of the
settlement process," Oskanyan said.
