Both Azerbaijan and Armenia are members of the Council of Europe (РЎР•) and we are interested in advancement of the negotiations on settlement of the Nagonorno-Katrabakh conflict between the countries, Rene Van der Linden, the President of PACE, stated at a news conference on opening of the PACE spring session on Monday, the correspondent of Trend in Strasbourg reports.
Linden noted there was no progress during the last meeting of the Azerbaijani-Armenian presidents (Rambue, France -Trend ).
Nevertheless, in our opinion the sides must come to the peaceful solution of the problem in the final, he stressed.
Besides, Linden said it was wrong to change the current format of the mediatorial mission. We will wait for completion of the negotiations through the mediation of the OSCE Minsk Group, he underlined. The President of PACE said that replace of the mediatorial format of the OSCE Minsk Group to the CE format was inexpedient.
