(Yerkir/Armenpress)–Another diplomat will replace the American co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group Steven Mann–who has been appointed Deputy Assistant Secretary of State on Central and South Asian Affairs.
According to Mann–it is a usual rotation. "Another co-chairman will represent the US during the talks about the settlement of the Nagorno Karabagh conflict," said Mann.
Azeri Foreign Affairs Minister Elmar Mamedyarov said that changing the American co-chairman will not have a negative impact on negotiations. He told journalists that his conviction is based on the professionalism of American diplomats.
"The important thing is that the Americans remain in the regulation process and want to continue it," said Mamedyarov–noting that one or two months will be enough time for the new chairman to become involved in the process.
