/PanARMENIAN.Net/ “I hope following a few meetings between ministers
of exterior of Azerbaijan and Armenia within the framework of Prague
process and negotiations held in Warsaw and Kazan in 2005, as well
as in Rambouillet, the Nagorno Karabakh conflict will be resolved,”
Romanian Foreign Minister Mihai-Razvan Ungureanu and chairman of
Council of Europe Committee of Ministers said in his written response
of April 12 to the questions raised by members of Azeri parliament
Ganira Pashayeva and Rafael Huseynov.

The letter says in part, “Heads of states shared their opinions
regarding the unresolved conflicts at the third meeting in
Warsaw. The CoE Committee of Ministers has come to decision to pay
special attention to the Nagorno Karabakh conflict. This position has
undergone no changes since Azerbaijan and Armenia joined the CoE. The
societies of both countries, including members of parliament, have
their responsibilities in this respect. Using the language of threats
is it impossible to come to a positive solution,” the Romanian Minister
writes. He opines that neither the CoE nor Committee of Ministers
is authorized to interfere into the negotiations or the conflict
resolution, as this is responsibility of OSCE Minsk Group. However,
the CoE may provide some assistance in development of cooperation
between the two countries, in particular, resolution 1690 approved
by Ministers Committee in September 2005, which states a number of
such initiatives, reported Trend.
