Asked by a Mediamax correspondent in Yerevan today, Armitage said he
was involved in the negotiations and knows that “when former
Azerbaijani President Heydar Aliyev returned from Key West to
Azerbaijan and submitted the conflict settlement alternative to his
country, he faced serious difficulties”.
“Therefore, we can talk about some progress made in Key West, but not
about agreements,” Armitage said.
The deputy secretary of state stressed that “a solution to the
Nagornyy Karabakh conflict cannot be imposed from outside” and
expressed the hope that Armenia and Azerbaijan would resume the talks
in the near future.
Richard Armitage stated that the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairmen were
ready to help the sides find a peaceful solution.
