YEREVAN, September 28. /ARKA/. Minister of Foreign Affairs of Armenia
Vartan Oskanian told "Azatutyun" (Freedom) radio in New York that
Azerbaijan tried to undermine "Minsk Process" of Karabakh conflict
by Armenia’s hands.

Oskanian said that we had confirmed our consent to the principles
laid on the negotiation table by his statement at the United Nations
General Assembly 61-th session, while Azerbaijan – all the time showed
between the lines, not evidently, that it tries to deviate from the
agreements, which had been achieved till then", he said.

In this connection Oskanian pointed out that Azerbaijan’s such position
proved that all that had taken place till the present time was aimed
at undermining the Minsk process.

He finds that diplomacy must be directed in a way that Azerbaijan could
not achieve its aim and its aspirations were exposed. In that Oskanian
said that we would be able to reanimate the existing document within
the framework of the OSCE Minsk Group Minks Group and force Azerbaijan
not to repudiate its promises and return to the negotiation table.

He also informed that the document still contained the idea of
referendum in Karabakh. "When we resume the negotiation process this
idea will become one of the key issues", he said.
