The official Baku is interested in the next meeting of the presidents of Azerbaijan and Armenia on peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the head of the foreign policy department of the Azerbaijan’s President executive office Novruz Mammadov told Trend exclusively.

He noted, he has no information in regard to the call by the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairmen on the next meeting of Ilham Aliyev and Robert Kocharyan in January 2006, which the Armenian president stated. В"Perhaps, he has received such information through some channels, as for me, I have not got such a proposal. In case any proposal is available, we are, undoubtedly, are interested in such a meeting. After the Kazan meeting the President of Azerbaijan is determined in continuation of such consultations for the sake of any results, of any progress”, Mammadov said and has not ruled out, that such proposal from the co-chairs may also come in Baku.

" I really see the opportunity for advancing although our task was not to be hasty. If there is favorable chance for the Karabakh conflict settlement, it would be unreasonable to miss it”, Kocharyan said.
