"There can not be a settlement of the Karabakh issue without the
participation of Artsakh," Armenian Minister of Foreign Affairs Edward
Nalbandian said.

Minister Nalbandian reminded that Armenia had declared ahead of the
Kazan Summit a year ago that there could not be any final agreement
over the Basic Principles without the approval of Nagorno-Karabakh.

"Even after an agreement over the Basic Principles, it will be
impossible to draft a peace treaty without the participation of
Nagorno-Karabakh," the Foreign Minister said.

Edward Nalbandian stressed that the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs
permanently hold consultations with the leadership of the
Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (Artsakh), as well.

The mediators will visit the region again in about ten days and they
are scheduled to pay a visit to Stepanakert, the Minister informed.
