BAKU, May 17. /TASS/. The meeting of the Azerbaijani and Armenian presidents in Vienna creates good opportunities for starting substantive talks on a settlement of the Karabakh conflict, Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mamedyarov has said in the wake of Monday’s Karabakh settlement talks mediated by the foreign ministers of the Minsk Group countries (Russia, the United States and France).
"I agree with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in that yesterday’s talks are a good pre-requisite for starting substantive negotiations on a step-by-step settlement of the conflict," Mamedyarov said in a statement issued by the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry.
Mamedyarov believes that the negotiations should begin as soon as possible and fundamental results, long expected by the people of the region and the international public, should be achieved."
