Minsk Group Content with Aliyev Kocharian Meeting

MOSCOW (Itar-Tass)–President Robert Kocharian and Azeri president Ilham Aliyev showed serious interest in reaching a settlement in the Karabagh conflict–co-chairmen of the OSCE Minsk group said in a statement after the meeting of the two countries’ leaders in Warsaw on Tuesday.

"Orders have been given to chiefs of foreign ministries of these states to continue the interaction with the co-chairmen on the basis of the positive results that have been achieved during the talks that took place last year within the framework of the Prague process in order to approach the working out of mutually acceptable proposals for settlement of the conflict," the document said.

The co-chairmen of the Minsk group "are compiling a schedule of consultations with the sides for the nearest months."

Kocharian and Aliyev held two-hour face-to-face talks in Warsaw–and presented "their considerations and conclusions" to the co-chairmen after their meeting.

The Russian and French foreign ministers–Sergei Lavrov and Michel Barnier–spoke at the opening of the meeting and expressed on behalf of the states "support to the activity of the Minsk group and commitment to a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict."
