Armenian Deputy Foreign Minister Tatul Markarian and his Azerbaijani counterpart Araz Azimov, together with the three co-chairmen of the OSCE Minsk Group, on 15 May ended three days of talks at Stirin, near Prague, on the Karabakh conflict, RFE/RL\'s Armenian Service reported. It was the first such meeting at deputy foreign minister level. An OSCE statement characterized the talks as \"useful,\" and said that the two deputy ministers will report to their respective presidents.

An OSCE statement characterized the talks as \"useful,\" and said that the two deputy ministers will report to their respective presidents. The statement did not name the date or venue for a subsequent meeting. Nor is it clear whether, as the sometimes unreliable opposition Azerbaijani newspaper \"Yeni Musavat\" claimed on 15 May, the Minsk Group mediators presented a new peace proposal based on the so-called \"Paris principles\" hammered out at talks in March-April 2001 between Armenian President Kocharian and his Azerbaijani counterpart Heidar Aliev.
