/PanARMENIAN.Net/ "Opinion that France should be expelled from
co-chairing the OSCE MG is heard frequently," Azeri FM Elmar
Mammadyarov said. "On the whole within the process the OSCE passed
a resolution on April 24, 1992 determining the mandate of the OSCE
Minsk Group. The document indicates that Armenia and Azerbaijan are
parties to the conflict, while the Armenian and Azeri communities of
NK are interested parties. Thereupon, some people start speaking of
changing the mandate, etc. The process should first of all be launched
at the OSCE and it will take time," he remarked.

"The co-chairs become more active lately and positive outcomes were
reached with their participation. I would like to mention the role of
the co-chairs, especially the US, in discussion of the resolution on
the fires in occupied territories at the UN GA. They reached certain
consensus, owing to which a resolution was adopted by the UN GA for
the first time in the history referring to the matter of occupied
territories, having to do with Azerbaijan and Armenia.

As it is known, a monitoring group of experts visited the region,
specifically the NK. At present we are awaiting for the results of
their work over the report. The document will probably made public
in mid-November," Mammadyarov said, reports
