BAKU: Armenian President Fails to Elaborate After ‘Time-Out’

Armenian President Fails to Elaborate After ‘Time-Out’

Assa Irada, Azerbaijan

Armenian President Robert Kocharian, who requested some time at the
Astana meeting of the Azeri and Armenian leaders to clarify certain
issues, has not spoken out on the issue yet, according to Foreign
Minister Elmar Mammadyarov.

“The time-out taken by the Armenian party in Astana has expired”,
the Minister said.

The Foreign Ministry of Azerbaijan has already notified the OSCE
Minsk Group co-chairs about this. Kocharian’s failure to elaborate
on the matter has also led to the postponement of the meeting of the
two countries’ foreign ministers originally scheduled for this month.
