Aliyev on Karabakh

Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev claims that talks with Armenia over the status of Nagorno-Karabakh are in their final stage:
"'It has been almost three years that the Karabakh negotiations have been conducted within the Prague [peace] process,' Aliyev said. 'During this period we have had many meetings at the levels of presidents and foreign ministers. Of course, in these meetings ways of resolving the problem were discussed. There were different stages, but I can tell you we are approaching the final stage of negotiations.'"

He didn't go into details, but most likely what will emerge is a Karabakh that is part of Azerbaijan, but with a great deal of autonomy and no prospect of full independence or union with Armenia.
