BAKU, July 8 (Itar-Tass) - The next meeting on the Nagorno Karabakh conflict settlement of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs with foreign ministers of Azerbaijan and Armenia will take place in July, Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mamedyarov told a news conference after the talks with OSCE Chairman-in-Office, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Leonid Kozhara, on Monday.
He said the date and format of the meeting are being finalized.
Mamedyarov did not rule out that international mediators will organize a meeting between the Azerbaijani and Armenian foreign ministers.
Mamedyarov expressed Azerbaijan’s readiness to start work on a comprehensive agreement on peaceful conflict settlement on the basis of principles proposed by international mediators and recently confirmed by heads of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chair countries - Russia, the United States and France - in their joint statement at the G8 summit.
“Azerbaijan also adopted the updated Madrid Principles for the conflict settlement and if Armenia also adopted them as that country’s foreign minister affirms, we can start work on a comprehensive peace agreement,” Mamedyarov said.
He said the parties can define a certain timeframe, for instance twenty-four months, and make gradually necessary steps. “We need such a plan of action,” he said.
Mamedyarov also called for intensifying the activities of the whole OSCE Minsk Group (that includes 12 countries - Itar-Tass) and not only of co-chairs.
He said meetings of the Minsk Group should be convened more often.
“I asked Ukraine as the country presiding over the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe for such meetings to be held in Vienna more often,” Mamedyarov said.
