Baku, March 10, AssA-Irada
The Armenia-Azerbaijan Upper (Nagorno) Garabagh conflict is expected to
be high on the agenda of the visit to Azerbaijan by the US Department
of State Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs Daniel
Fried, who will visit Baku next week. Also to be discussed during the
visit are the results of the latest consultations of the mediating
OSCE Minsk Group co-chairmen held in Washington.
“The co-chairs decided after the latest meeting that they should meet
and review the results of the discussion. As you know, the situation is
quite complicated and requires frequent coordination,” Deputy Foreign
Minister and the Azerbaijani President’s Upper Garabagh negotiator,
Araz Azimov, has said. He said it was natural for the co-chairmen
not to have disclosed any information to the press.
“You never know how information will be interpreted and what course
events will take. I think the co-chairmen’s steps are justifiable.
They want to consult the parties to the conflict after the Washington
meeting,” Azimov added.
