Troika Holds First Meeting

COPENHAGEN (Itar-Tass)–The three-month-long international mediation efforts to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh problem are coming to a close–Danish authorities said this week.

Denmark is the current chairman of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe–the parent organization of the Minsk Group.

"All three co-chairmen have agreed to abide by a common consolidating position on the basis of the OSCE decisions," Russian special envoy to the Minsk Group–Yuri Yukalov–said.

A meeting of all nine participants in the Minsk process is scheduled for March. The first round of negotiations with all parties involved in the conflict will begin in April.

Yukalov noted that nobody is satisfied with the tempo of the peace process. Although the parties to the conflict have been observing a cease-fire over the last three years–no significant progress has been made.
