Forecast: It is not necessary to expect fundamental changes in the  talks on Karabakh from the Vienna meeting of the Foreign Ministers of  the Foreign Ministry

ArmInfo.It is not necessary to expect fundamental changes in the talks on Karabakh from the Vienna meeting of the Foreign Ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan.   Mihran Hakobyan, a deputy of the National Assembly of Armenia from  the ruling Republican Party of Armenia, expressed such opinion to  ArmInfo.

Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian is in Vienna to attend a  meeting of OSCE foreign ministers. The Armenian Minister will hold  talks with his Azerbaijani counterpart Elmar Mammadyarov, in the  number of meetings with foreign colleagues and co-chairs of the OSCE  Minsk Group. Following the last meeting of Nalbandyan-Mammadyarov in  Brussels in July this year, in October in Geneva, Sargsyan- Aliyev  met.

"The negotiating process is continuing, diplomats are working, but I  do not see any prospects for fundamental changes in the process in  the foreseeable future." In this light, of course, there is not much  to expect from the Vienna meeting of the foreign ministers. 

Diplomatic activity of Baku and its main ally of Turkey does not  inspire any special hopes regarding the prospects for the settlement  of the conflict, "he said.  The parliamentarian determines the  solidarity of the OSCE MG co-chair countries in the need to preserve  the status quo around Karabakh by the absence of a mutually  acceptable variant of the conflict settlement, which, in his opinion,  is due in turn to the long-standing destructive position of Baku.    According to Hakobyan, negotiations with the Kazan meeting of the  presidents are not about reaching a settlement of the conflict, but  around continuing the negotiations themselves. In such circumstances,  the Minsk Group is basically trying to manage the current crisis  phase of the conflict.And according to the parliamentarian, only the  implementation of the Vienna and St. Petersburg agreements by  Azerbaijan will allow us to move to substantive negotiations, which  is  so demanded and wanted in words in Baku.
