PRAGUE (Noyan-Tapan)-The Foreign Minister of Armenia Vartan Oskanian–answering an Azeri reporter’s question on the final resolution of Mountainous Karabagh–stated that he couldn’t give a precise answer to that ‘million dollar question.’
To the Azeri reporter’s assertion that Mountainous Karabagh will stay within the borders of Azerbaijan–Oskanian–answering the questions in Prague during a mainly English briefing–told reporters the following: "I am going to answer this one in Russian to make it clear to you–once and for all: the answer is a solid ‘Net’ (Russian for "no").
Regarding the UN proposed single state regulation for Cyprus–Oskanian was positive on the issue–saying that the proposal could be instrumental in solving that and other conflicts. Oskanian refused –however–to draw parallels between Cyprus and Karabagh. "We deal with two different conflicts–which were based on two different grounds," concluded Oskanian.
