BAKU, April 25. /TASS/. The presidents of Azerbaijan and France, Ilkham Aliyev and Francois Hollande, discussed in Baku on Saturday the situation at talks on the settlement in the mostly Armenian populated Azerbaijani enclave of Nagorno Karabakh.
Details of the talks are not unveiled. The French leader arrived in Baku late on Friday for a short visit after visiting Armenia, where he participated in ceremonies commemorating the victims of the Armenian genocide in the Ottoman Empire a hundred years ago.
President Ilkham Aliyev "expressed satisfaction with the activity of Francois Hollande in the settlement of the [Karabakh] conflict," his press service reported.
"The sides also expressed an interest in expansion of ties, marking big possibilities existing for that," it said. A letter of intent to set up an Azerbaijani-French university was signed after the talks, the press service said.
