STEPANAKERT. – International community through OSCE Minsk Group tries
to preserve some pace on the regulation process of the Karabakh
conflict by feeding the two sides that there are any versions of
the conflict solution. This mechanism indeed works for supporting
preservation of the current status-quo, head of the PR department of
Nagorno-Karabachos (Artsakh) president Davit Babayan told Armenian
News-NEWS.am.

Babayan believes that the Kazan meeting will not bring substantive
progress to the negotiation process.

“There are different viewpoints on the Kazan meeting, however, no
common denominator for the solution. Nagorno Karabakh is not part of
negation process yet. Thus, any solution for Karabakh is illogic to
carry out without Karabakh’s participation. Moreover Karabakh is not
a defeated side,” Babayan stated.

Babayan believes there can be two possible developments as a
result of the Kazan meeting. Either a joint statement may be signed
reminding on human rights, territorial integrity and peoples’ right
of self-determination, or OSCE will announce on negotiation process
to enter a new stage.
