Iran Proposes Alternate Peace Plan for Karabakh Conflict

TEHRAN (–Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said Wednesday that Tehran had submitted a peace proposal to Armenia and Azerbaijan on resolving the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

‘We have put forward our proposals to Azerbaijan and Armenia on a solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict,’ Mottaki told a press conference in Tehran.

The Iranian top-diplomat expressed confidence that the sides would give positive feedback on the proposals, which appear to be an alternate to basic principles for peace proposed by the US, Russian, and French-led OSCE Minsk Group, which mediates the Karbakh conflict.

He said that that Iran was a supporter of peace in the world and hoped for an early resolution of conflicts in the region.

Mottaki declined, however, to give details of the proposals.

‘Iran has always supported the peace settlement of the Karabakh conflict and it is ready to provide any assistance to the resolution of this problem,’ sources in the Iranian embassy in Baku commented to

This was the motivation for the proposals put forward by Mottaki, the embassy source said.

“Iran supports stability and peace in the region and puts all efforts for this purpose”, the sources said.
