Armenia: OSCE/Minsk Plan For Karabakh Accepted

Yerevan, 9 October 1997 (RFE/RL) - A spokesman for Armenia's foreign ministry today says his country has accepted a proposal by the Minsk Group of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict on a "step-by-step" basis.

Spokesman Arsen Gasparyan told RFE/RL that Armenia has accepted the proposal and is now awaiting clarification on the order in which the issues will be discussed.

Azerbaijan last night said it would agree to the plan put forward by the OSCE on settling the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

The Minsk Group proposed the "step-by step" formula for resolving the conflict after Nagorno-Karabakh and Azerbaijan both rejected a proposed "package" solution to the conflict proposed by the Minsk Group earlier this summer.
