After visiting the region the meeting of the co-chairs with the heads of Foreign Ministers of Azerbaijan and Armenia will be held in Ljubljana, where the meeting of the Foreign Ministries heads of OSCE member states will take place.
As for the date of the subsequent meeting of Presidents of Azerbaijan and Armenia, deputy FM head noted вЂњthe time of the new meeting is unknownвЂќ, adding вЂњmeetings of such level are held only in case of needвЂќ.
Commenting on the position of the official Baku on reports and proposals of the International Crisis Group (ICG) Araz Azimov noted, such institutions are unofficial structures.

At the same time, Azimov noted, there are a lot of mistakes and shortcomings in the document, publicized by ICG, related to the вЂњinsufficient informational support and the lack of the expertsвЂ™ professionalism.
