/PanARMENIAN.Net/ After replacement of US Co-Chair of the OSCE MG for
settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict, replacement of Russian and
French Co-Chairs Yuri Merzlyakov and Bernard Fassier is also possible,
stated Azeri President’s Special Representative for Karabakh issue,
Deputy FM Araz Azimov. In his words, "M. Bryza entering the region
opens some prospects." Azimov also noted that the Azeri party has
presented Azerbaijan’s stand in the Karabakh issue to the American
mediator.

When commenting on Bryza’s statement that the NK status should be
decided by its people, which also implies "people living there before
1988," Azimov underscored that Karabakh residents should be treated
not as people, but as population. "In this matter we should take
into account both the opinion of Armenian and Azeri communities,"
Azimov said. He also believes that the question of status can be
discussed only after "occupied" territories are returned to Azerbaijan,
