вЂњFrom the beginning of 2006 the efforts directed at the resolution of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh will be intensified,вЂќ the Azerbaijani Foreign Minister, Elmar Mammadyarov, told journalists.
Mammadyarov said they achieved an agreement on the conduct of a meeting of the Armenian and Azerbaijani Foreign Ministers in Ljubljana on 4-5 December 2005, though format of the talks were still to be determined. вЂњPerhaps, it will be a tet-a-tet meeting, which is not to be conducted as part of a gathering of the Foreign Ministers of OSCE member-countries,вЂќ Mammadyarov said, noting that the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs will also participate in the talks.
Touching upon the continuation of the negotiation process, Mammadyarov noted that on Thursday the co-chairs delivered reports on the process of peaceable resolution of the conflict at a meeting of the Permanent Council of the OSCE. The FM also underlined that the co-chairs were planning to tour the region in mid-December.
