Parliamentary elections not to affect on the Nagorno-Karabakh resolution process
вЂњThe would be parliamentary elections will not affect on the positive or negative resolution of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh,вЂќ Novruz Mammadov, the head of the Foreign Relations Department under the Azerbaijani PresidentвЂ™s Administration, told Trend.
He was commenting on the statement by Russian Ambassador Yuriy Merzlyakov, the OSCE Minsk Group co-chair, who urged that the schedule of domestic policy of Azerbaijan and Armenia was busy enough to pay a next visit to the region in mid-December.
According to Mammadov, though Armenia will hold referendum and
Azerbaijan parliamentary elections in November, the situation in these countries cannot be compared. Azerbaijan states on absence of any problems or obstacles for the meeting of the Foreign Ministers with the Minsk Group co-chairs, as well as the mediatorsвЂ™ visit to the region late this year.
Mammadov found difficult to comment on the statement by Merzlyakov, who announced on the development of proposals concerning the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. вЂњOver the past period, in particular, in summer period, the peace talks have become intensive. We note the positive milestones linked with the resolution of the conflict, whilst it does not mean enough proximity in the positions of the sides. I guess the co-chairs want to submit to the heads of states proposals developed on the base of such milestones,вЂќ he said.
