US Appoints New Envoy to Misnk Group Chairmanship

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–Changes are currently being made in the OSCE Minsk Group Cochairmanship–Armenia’s Foreign Minister Vardan Oskanian said in an interview with Noyan Tapan. From now on–the United States will be represented by Donald Keiser–an experienced diplomat of the US Department of State. The former representative of the US to the OSCE Minsk Group was appointed ambassador to Malaysia.

Oskanian feels that these changes will not affect the OSCE general concepts–however–to a certain degree will hamper the negotiating process–as it will take new faces some time to study the current state of affairs.

Oskanian thinks that a certain activation in the negotiating process can be expected this November when the OSCE Minsk Group settles its internal problems and the presidential election in Azerbaijan concludes.
