Azerbaijan, Baku / corr. Trend S.Ilhamgizi / "The Chairman of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, Goran Lennmarker, who participated at the meeting of the PACE Permanent Commission as a guest, said that after the completion of the parliamentary elections in Armenia scheduled to take place in May, a peaceful agreement may be signed on the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement," said the member of the Azerbaijani delegation to the Council of Europe's Parliamentary Assembly (PACE), Rafael Huseynov, who attended the meeting of the Permanent Commission.
According him, Lennmarker delivered a report regarding the political situation of Europe. His report touched up on the aggression of Armenia against Azerbaijan and Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. He said that a peaceful agreement may be signed between Azerbaijan and Armenia on the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement. Lennmarker stressed that the sides have discussed the proposals of the OSCE Minsk Group and an agreement was reached on several aspects. "Lennmarker said that discussions continue over several issues and work is carried out in direction of preparing the peaceful agreement," Huseynov said.
According to the MP, Lennmarker noted that in 2001, in the American Southern Town of Kiu-West, Azerbaijan and Armenia were too close to come to an peaceful agreement. However, even now, the positions of the both sides are very close to each other. "He added that the resolution of the conflict depends on mutual conflicts, and both Armenia and Azerbaijan should be ready for making mutual compromises. At the same time, the peaceful resolution depends both on the two Presidents and readiness of the both nations for compromises," said Mr. Huseynov.
Mr. Lennmarker also noted that the peaceful resolution of the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict may have positive effects on the resolution of other conflicts.
