Armenia’s main principals reflected in regulations on resolution of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict: deputy foreign minister
Armenia's three main principals on resolution of the [Armenian-Azerbaijani] Nagorno-Karabakh conflict were reflected in published regulations, Armenian Deputy Foreign Minister Shavarsh Kocharyan said in an interview with Novosti-Armeniya
Recently Russian President Dimitriy Medvedev, U.S President Barack Obama and French President Nicolas Sarkozy made a statement, which says that the version of last proposals on Nagorno-Karabakh conflict will be presented to Baku and Yerevan.
In statement the Presidents charge their mediators to introduce renovated version of Madrid document dated November 2007, including the co-chairs' last proposals on formulation of main principles to Azerbaijan and Armenian presidents.
In addition the main principles on resolution of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict have been publicized.
It reflects three principles put forward by Armenia, which are under development, Kocharyan said.
According to Kocharyan, the first principle deals with status of so-called "Nagorno-Karabakh Republic".
Kocharyan named safe land communication between Armenia and so-called "Nagorno-Karabakh Republic" as the second main principle
And at last, the most important is the internationally strengthened and multilayer system ensuring security of Nagorno-Karabakh's people, Kocharyan said.
Indeed negotiations are underway. But it does not mean that the published document is to be signed. The work is serious enough to require concretizing regulations, serious attention and laborious task, he added.
The next meeting of Azerbaijan and Armenia presidents in Moscow is regular, but it also follows a statement of presidents of the three countries, Kocharyan added.
According to Kocharyan, the meeting will center on regulations and make negotiations concrete in whole.
However, it is not worth to expect immediate solution of problem following the statement of the presidents of the OSCE Minsk group co-chairing countries, because the sides hold different stances on many issues, Kocharyan said.
The next meeting of the Armenian and Azerbaijani Presidents Serzh Sargsyan and Ilham Aliyev, is scheduled to be held in Moscow in mid-July during the informal international horse races for the Russian President's Prize. The last meeting between Aliyev and Sargsyan was in St. Petersburg in June.
