Although the formal results of the referendum were not available by late Saturday, officials said that more than 85 of those eligible had voted and that the number required for approval two-thirds of the electorate was assured. "Maybe three or four people voted against it," one Armenian parliamentary deputy joked. Throughout the Armenian capital, residents celebrated the referendum's expected outcome with street music, balloons, speeches and wild motorcades flying the vivid orange, red and blue of the national flag. Even as Armenia celebrated, however, efforts to negotiate a settlement of its bloody dispute with the neighboring republic of Azerbaijan encountered new difficulties. At issue is the embattled region of Nagorno-Karabakh, an ; enclave within predominantly Mus-J lim Azerbaijan that is populated largely by Christian Armenians. Russian President Boris Yeltsin, leading a peace mission to the area, proposed restoring Nagorno-Karabakh to its status as a fully autonomous region the same status that it had before it was made part of Azerbaijan in 1988. Yeltsin said Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev has the authority to change Nagorno-Karabakh's status by presidential decree. But Azerbaijani officials asserted that only their parliament has the authority to change the region's Soviets learn j campaigning, I American style ', THE ASSOCIATED PRESS u MOSCOW It was a scene many American politicians never i W V . ,4- .SfeCNnsJWlN Awi-i oV'tl- H-v V(, - vviM - v C - ' ii believed they would see.
