Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov says the delegates from Baku would proceed with the visit after the State Department changed wording in the report on Nargorno-Karabakh, an area in Azerbaijan controled by ethnic Armenians.


Mammadyarov said a new date will be set for the security talks, which originally were scheduled to begin on April 30.
