read the Report of the fact-finding mission on results of visit to
the occupied areas of Azerbaijan after it is disclosed: “The people
should understand that the Report of the fact-finding mission aims
at promotion of the negotiation process. This is desired by both the
Minsk Group co-chairs and the United States Government.”
Mr. Steven Mann did not make any comments on the Report to be
disclosed next Friday in Vienna at the OSCE Permanent Council’s
meeting in Vienna, saying he did not want to make any conclusion until
that time. But he added: “I am convinced that the document has been

of Emil Haber have done their work at high level”.
