It is impossible to state on the achievement of a tremendous progress in a meeting of the Azerbaijani and Armenian presidents in Bucharest and at present there is necessity for coordinating the positions of both conflict sides, Elmar Mammadyarov, the Azerbaijani Foreign Minister, told journalists on 6 June.
On 6-7 June the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs will hold additional meeting in Bucharest, which will define the necessity for next round of talks of the Azerbaijani and Armenian presidents.
There is still hope for the peaceable resolution of the conflict and we are eager to continue efforts in this direction, Mammadyarov underscored. Work for bringing closer the positions of the conflict is continuing. The issue on the withdrawal of the Armenian troops from the occupied territory of Azerbaijan and repatriation of refugees is under consideration, the Azerbaijani FM stressed.
Moreover, Mammadyarov noted that Azerbaijan does not rule out possible application of Triest model in the issue on economic autonomy.
However, the issue on autonomy concerns not only the Armenia. But also the Azerbaijani communities of the Nagorno-Karabakh, said the Azerbaijani Minister, noting that the issue on referendum found its exact implication in the Constitution of Azerbaijan.
With respect to rotation of the US Ambassador Steven Mann, the OSCE Minsk Group co-chair, Mammadyarov noted that the new diplomat was still to be renamed and the issue will be resolved in the nearest two months. I can only state that the United States is really keen on rapid resolution of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict, Mammadyarov underlined.
