The co-chairmen of the OSCE Minsk Group said they are hopeful
Azerbaijan and Armenia will continue making progress in their
negotiations to settle the conflict over Nagorno- Karabakh.
"The co-chairmen expressed hope that the parties will maintain the
momentum gained during talks over the past few months and that the
heads of the foreign ministries of Azerbaijan and Armenia will meet
again in the near future to overcome remaining disagreements over the
fundamental principles of the future settlement agreement," the
co-chairmen said in a statement adopted after their meeting in Paris
on February 14-15.

The co-chairmen called on the sides to "avoid any steps within any
organizations, including the UN General Assembly, which could
undermine the progress reached in recent months."
