PARIS The foreign ministers of Azerbaijan and Armenia met in Paris for
talks Tuesday on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, and discussions were
"very frank and open-minded," mediators said.

Armenian Foreign Minister Vardan Oskanian and Azerbaijani Foreign
Minister Elmar Mammadyarov are to meet again Nov. 14 in Brussels,
said mediators from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in
Europe’s so-called Minsk group, which deals with the conflict.

In Paris, "the two ministers held a constructive meeting in a very
frank and open-minded atmosphere," the OSCE said in a statement.

Nagorno-Karabakh is a region in Azerbaijan that has been under the
control of Armenian and ethnic-Armenian Karabakh forces since a 1994
cease-fire ended a six-year separatist war that killed about 30,000
people and drove about 1 million from their homes.

The region’s final status has not been worked out, and years of
talks under the auspices of OSCE mediators have brought little
visible result.

Co-chairs of the Minsk group plan to assess the idea of a third
meeting in 2006 between the presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan,
the statement said.
