Baku, 3 July: Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov and
the US co-chairman of the OSCE Minsk Group, Matthew Bryza, held
consultations at the Foreign Ministry in Baku today.
When commenting on the three-hour talks, Deputy Foreign Minister
Araz Azimov made an unexpected acknowledgement that the talks on the
Karabakh solution "have reached an impasse". The reason for this is
the position of Armenians who have been avoiding specifics recently.
Azimov views a stage-by-stage solution as a way out of the situation,
however, the Armenian side sabotages it.
Commenting on arms supplies to Armenia from Russia, Azimov said
that Russia "has to decide on" this matter. He said that European
countries are refusing to supply Armenia with weapons as was the case
