Acting Foreign Minister of Armenia Edward Nalbandian received the
Special Representative of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office for the South
Caucasus, Patrick Murphy.

Minister Nalbandian and Ambassador Murphy discussed in detail the ways
of settlement of the Karabakh issue. In that context the Armenian
Foreign Minister called attention to the steps of Azerbaijan that
disturb regional stability and security - its military rhetoric,
arms race and periodic provocations at the line of contact.

Patrick Murphy noted, in turn, that the OSCE Irish presidency supports
the efforts of the OSCE Minsk Group towards peaceful settlement of
the Karabakh issue and the initiatives aimed at alleviation of tension
at the line of contact and reinforcement of trust.

The interlocutors referred to the issues of the agenda of the OSCE
Chairman's forthcoming visit to the South Caucasus.
