OSCE Minsk Group hopes for further progress at Karabakh talks

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.

Copies of the document were circulated by the French embassy in Baku
on Friday.

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."

The OSCE Minsk Group includes Russia, the United States and France.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
