/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Nagorno Karabakh issue acquired a new coloring in the
context of Armenian-Turkish reconciliation, said Richard Giragosian,
the director of the Armenian Center for National and International
"With appointment of Robert Bradtke as Co-chair of the OSCE Minsk
Group, the U.S. returned to the policy it pursued in 2004. Resolution
of the Karabakh conflict is important for the OSCE U.S. now," he said
during "Armenian-Turkish Diplomacy and Nagorno Karabakh: Deal or No
Deal?" seminar on November 5.
"There is a new calendar drawn for resolution of the conflict. It
covers the period from the presidential meeting in Moldova till the
OSCE ministerial meeting in Athens. Nevertheless, I do not expect
progress in Karabakh talks till January 2010," he said.
At that, Mr. Giragosian emphasized that sides should act more
transparently and raise public awareness about the ongoing peace
process to avoid dissemination of disinformation.
