Armenia Hopes Azerbaijan Will Reconsider Karabakh Peace Plan

YEREVAN (RFE/RL)–Armenian Foreign Minister Vartan Oskanian said Monday that he hoped Azerbaijan would reconsider its approach to resuming talks on a settlement of the Karabakh conflict even though it has rejected what he termed the "compromise version" of a "common state" proposed in the latest OSCE Minsk Group draft plan.

Oskanian was speaking in Brussels–where he is heading the Armenian delegation to a regular meeting of the Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council.

At a press briefing in Yerevan Tuesday–Foreign Ministry spokesman Arsen Gasparian similarly said that "We think the most recent proposal by the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairmen on resolving the Karabakh conflict is the only version on the basis of which progress–and later the full settlement of the conflict–will be possible."
