  • ANC Member: OSCE MG Co-Chairs Will Discuss Azeri Suggestions In Yere


    June 29, 2011 - 13:10 AMT

    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.
