The Karabakh conflict has no military solution, US Co-Chair of the
OSCE Minsk Group is confident

US Co-Chair of the OSCE Minsk Group Matthew Bryza said in an
interview to MEDIAMAX agency that, `The statements in the region
should not include hatred or a threat of applying force, since the
Karabakh conflict has no military solution. This kind of solution
does not exist today. It will not exist in 10, 15, 30 or 50 years.’
Commenting on the mediators’ suggestion to hold a referendum in
Nagorno Karabakh, Matthew Bryza noted that the document including the
main principles includes the following terminology: referendum or
popular vote.
`Azerbaijan says that it means a popular vote and not a referendum,
referring to its Constitution, which says that all the citizens of
the country must participate in the referendum. In my opinion, the
Armenian side is not satisfied with this version, in case of which
the whole population of Azerbaijan will participate in the voting.
Thus, we must find a clever way and organize the voting process so
that it corresponds to the interests of both Armenia and Azerbaijan,
the US mediator said.
