Armenian, Azerbaijani foreign ministers to discuss Karabakh in Brussels

YEREVAN. July 11

Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian will meet with Azerbaijani
Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov in Brussels on Tuesday, a spokesman
for the Armenian Foreign Ministry told Interfax.

"Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian will meet with
Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov in Brussels on July 11
with the mediation and in the presence of the OSCE Minsk Group
co-chairs," the spokesman said.

"The meeting will take place on Tuesday evening," Azerbaijani Foreign
Ministry spokesperson Hikmet Hajiyev told Interfax.

"The main topics of the Brussels meeting between the Azerbaijani and
Armenian foreign ministers will be the current status of negotiations
and their development in a serious and fruitful manner," Hajiyev said.

Baku is counting on profound and efficient negotiations on the
Karabakh settlement process, he said.

Tensions escalated in the Karabakh conflict zone on July 4 after
Azerbaijan had accused the Armenian army of shelling a village in the
Fizuli district, causing the death of an elderly woman and a child.
Stepanakert stated that fire was opened in response to Azerbaijani
shelling.

Yerevan and Baku nonetheless said that their foreign ministers would
still have the meeting scheduled for July to address the Karabakh
peace process.

“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
