On 21 March in Yerevan, the Foreign Minister of Armenia, Vardan Oskanyan, expressed his regret that the Armenia and Azerbaijan are not very close to signing the document to confirm the principles of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement, Mediamax reports.
During his speech at the conference, Oskanyan said that many contradictions remain and the final meeting in Geneva cannot be considered as progress. The Armenian Foreign Minister believes that the parties will continue consultations to organize a meeting of the Presidents of Azerbaijan and Armenia after the parliamentary elections in Armenia.
Oskanyan voiced that Armenia is prepared to continue negotiations on the basis of the document that is on the negotiations table at present. According to him, in 1996 it was only possible to hope that the document would be discussed, which aims at recognizing the self-appointment rights of Nagorno-Karabakh people through conducting a referendum.
