Azeri, Armenian officials to hold talks in U.S.

Azerbaijani Deputy Foreign Minister Araz Azimov, and Armenian Foreign
Minister Vardan Oskanian are due to visit Washington shortly, Radio
Liberty reported.

During the visit, Azimov is expected to discuss military and
political issues with American officials.

Oskanian is to meet with the US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice
and attend the ceremony of allocating a $236 million aid package to
Armenia by the United States within the Millennium Challenge program.

The US co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group brokering settlement to the
Armenia-Azerbaijan Upper (Nagorno) Garabagh conflict, Steven Mann,
has confirmed the report. He stressed, however, that the visits had
been scheduled a long time ago and are not related to the Garabagh
peace talks.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
