I hope the re-run parliamentary elections [scheduled for 13 May 2006] in Azerbaijan will be held in line with international standards, Matthew Bryza, the adviser to US Secretary of State on Europe and Asia, told local television channel ANS.

She grounded her assurance with the great work done by the Azerbaijani government in this direction. It will come as an excellent result of the joint efforts of the government of Azerbaijan and the United States, she added.

Bryza arrived in Baku on 3 April with the Director on planning of the US Department of State, Stephan Crazner and held a meeting Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev.
