Germany, Berlin / Trend corr A. Maharramli / The head of the subcommittee on Nagorno-Karabakh of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) lord Russell Johnston believes that the Berlin discussions over lingered conflicts will not have positive results. "I do not expect a special progress to occur as a result of the discussions," he said in Berlin on 5 November.
The Monitoring Committee of PACE and the German Institute for International Affairs and Security organized discussions over lingered conflicts (Nagorno-Karabakh, Trans-Dniester, Georgian-Abkhazian, and Georgian-Ossetian) in Berlin on 5 to 6 November. The forum involves both official representatives of the conflicting countries and international experts.
Russell Johnston reported that the meeting would enable an exchange of views on peaceful settlement of the conflicts and once more to study the viewpoints and positions of the sides.
Azerbaijan is represented at the Berlin forum by the head of the Office on Planning of Foreign Policy & Strategic Researches Tofig Musayev, the head of the Azerbaijani PACE delegation Samad Seyidov, and MPs.
