US Ambassador Matthew Bryza, the OSCE Minsk Group Co-chair, said in talks with journalists on February 7th that a scenario of the Kosovo conflict will not be a precedent for the resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Trend reports.
Every conflict in the world has a unique character and no parallel should be carried out between the methods of resolution. Speaking of chances of settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict this year, the diplomat noted that the situation was complicated due to parliamentary elections in Armenia and in this situation when attempts are taken to promote the negotiation process it is necessary to act carefully. At the same time he voiced his optimism with respect to a resolution of the conflict and stressed the necessity for strong will of the Presidents of the two countries.
Mr. Bryza said that common approaches have been found in major elements of the agreement and technical parameters are currently under consideration. He found difficulty in announcing the date of the next round of talks between the Foreign Ministers of Azerbaijan and Armenia.
