Baku, 10 August: "I said in my interview that in some cases
self-determination leads to independence and in other cases to autonomy
within state borders. It is up to state leaders how to use the right
to self-determination," Matthew Bryza, the US Assistant Deputy State
Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs and the OSCE Minsk Group
co-chairman, has told the US bureau of APA news agency.

Asked about uproar caused by his interview with Russia’s Vremya
Novostey newspaper [on 6 August] in Azerbaijan, Bryza said that the
US policy was to support Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity.

"As a co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group, my duty is to help leaders
to think which compromises can be made [in the Nagornyy Karabakh
resolution]," Bryza said.
