Kocharian meets with U.S. mediator on Nagorno-Karabakh

Armenian President Robert Kocharian has met with U.S. Co-Chair of the
OSCE Minsk Group Matthew Bryza, who arrived in Yerevan on Saturday,
the presidential press service told Interfax.

"The parties discussed the latest developments in attempts to settle
the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict," the press service said.

Bryza also met with Armenian Foreign Minister Vardan Oskanian.

The U.S. diplomat plans to travel to Nagorno-Karabakh to meet with
the local leadership.

Oskanian said earlier that "Armenia does not expect Matt Bryza to
make some new proposals on the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement and hopes
first of all that the U.S. co-chair would be able to return
Azerbaijan to the negotiating table to address the document on the
Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement already on the table."

The OSCE Minsk Group comprises representatives of Russia, France and
the U.S.

Bryza is visiting the region of the conflict as an OSCE Minsk Group
co-chair for the first time.

“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
