Russian Minister said the OSCE Mink Group has worked out such a document for settling the conflict that a lot of other conflicting countries would envy. “I hope exactly this uniqueness will help Baku and Yerevan to reach a new level of settlement. Authorities of Armenia and Azerbaijan must make final decision, but mediator countries, including Russia, will be guarantees of commitments reached during the negotiation process,” Sergey Lavrov underscored.
Acting Foreign Minister Vartan Oskanian said still there is no agreement on principal issues of the settlement. “Exactly principles of settlement become a stumbling block. At the coming April meeting with Azeri FM talks over these issues will be continued, which will allow the Co-Chairs to begin preparation works for a meeting between Presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan after parliamentary elections in Armenia,” Oskanian said. /APA/
