PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian National Congress (ANC) foreign relations
committee member believes that during their visit to Yerevan, OSCE MG
co-chairs will discuss Azerbaijan's suggestions on Karabakh conflict
settlement with Armenian authorities.

As Vladimir Karapetyan told a news conference in Yerevan, "Kazan
meeting proved the process is not yet completed, with mediators
interested in finalization of a document on basic principles of
conflict settlement. Armenian President and Foreign Minister have
already expressed readiness to sign the document, although the latter
does not fully meet their expectations."

"Armenia's mistake was the failure to point out Azerbaijan's
destructive position at Kazan meeting," the ANC member said.

Karapetyan slammed Armenia for refraining to advance any suggestions
on the agreement, although accepting their dissatisfaction with the
document. "As a result, the co-chairs will bring Azeri suggestions
to Yerevan to be discussed with Armenian authorities," he said.

The summit between Russia, Azerbaijan and Armenia in Kazan on June
24 completed without an agreement on basic principles of Nagorno
Karabakh conflict settlement. "The countries' leaders registered mutual
understanding on a range of problems, the resolution of which boosts
creation of conditions for approving main principles. The meeting
participants considered the course of works carried out with the aim
of coordination of the project with basic principles," according to
the statement. The Presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan expressed
gratitude to the Russian, French and U.S. leaders, the OSCE Minsk
group co-chairs, for 'their constant attention to Nagorno-Karabakh
problem' and highly praised personal efforts of the Russian President
in support of agreements.

Later on Minister of Foreign Affairs Edward Nalbandian noted that the
June 24 meeting was not a breakthrough, as Azerbaijan proved unready
to accept the final version of the basic principles suggested by the
OSCE Minsk Group Co-chairs. Instead, the Azerbaijani leader attempted
to impose 10 new proposals, thus precluding the possibility of any
agreement on the issue," he added.
