Armenia Rejects OSCE Proposal on Karabakh

YEREVAN (Armenpress/Noyan Tapan)–The sixth summit of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s foreign ministers concluded its work Friday in Copenhagen–with the rejection of all proposed documen’s undermining the Karabakh stance.

As reported earlier–participants of the summit discussed issues regarding to regional conflicts–including crises within the OSCE jurisdiction.

During discussions of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict–a resolution reconfirming the previously adopted Lisbon principles was proposed–at which point the Armenian delegation voiced its opposition–rejecting the proposal.

Following–the same document was reintroduced to the summit as a statement of the OSCE chairperson–and again–Armenia’s opposition to it ensured the failure of the proposal.

As a result–no document was signed during the summit. The OSCE co-chairmen delivered a report about the work they did during 1997.

In addition–proposals by the summit to continue the negotiations in the form of a stage-by-stage deal were rejected by Armenia.
