Armenian Foreign Minister Meets with OSCE Minsk Group’s Co-chair in Washington
Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian, who is currently visiting Washington, met with US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Daniel Fried and his Deputy, U.S. co-chair of OSCE Minsk Group Matthew Bryza.
Armenian Foreign Ministry reported to Mediamax that Nalbandian and Fried discussed bilateral cooperation, regional security and stability issues.
The two officials exchanged their views about the causes and consequences of post-election developments in Armenia and the measures being taken by Armenian authorities to overpass them, as well as prospects of establishment of Armenia-Turkey relationships.
At his meeting with Matthew Bryza, Nalbandian discussed the current stage of negotiations on Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the results of co-chairs' last visit to the region, as well as opportunities to organize a new meeting between Foreign Ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan.
Speaking on continuation of negotiations, Nalbandian said Azerbaijani administration's statements containing evident territorial claims for Armenia and militarist propaganda do not gain good estimate from international community. Armenian Foreign Ministry said such attitude rather complicates creation of mutual trust atmosphere in negotiations.
