Peace settlement of the dragged-out conflict in Azerbaijan’s mostly
Armenian-populated region of Karabakh is possible only if authorities
of the unrecognized Karabakh republic take part in the process,
the region’s Foreign Minister, Georgy Petrossian, said here Tuesday.
"We welcome a statement of the G8 on support to mediating efforts
and on the importance of coordinating the major principles of peace
settlement of the conflict," he said.
"Karabakh has always advocated a peace settlement of its problem
and it is ready to exert efforts for an early possible agreement on
setting up durable peace in the region," Petrossian indicated,
