Karabakh Summit Report

RFE-RL reports that no concrete progress was made in the latest Karabakh talks:
"Armenian Foreign Minister Vartan Oskanian told journalists on his return from St. Petersburg to Yerevan that the two presidents focused on those questions on which the co-chairs hoped progress could be achieved, but that 'unfortunately no progress was made, and the existing differences still remain,' according to Mediamax. A correspondent for RFE/RL's Armenian Service quoted an unnamed 'reliable source' as saying that one of several points of disagreement is the proposed mention in any intermediate peace agreement of how the final status of the unrecognized republic of Nagorno-Karabakh should be determined: Armenia reportedly wants the intermediate agreement to stipulate that the status will be decided in a referendum, while Azerbaijan opposes any mention of status."
