The meeting between the Armenian and Azerbaijani presidents [Robert
Kocharyan and Ilham Aliyev] in Warsaw will give a boost to future
negotiations, Armenian Foreign Minister Vardan Oskanyan has said. The
Armenian foreign minister said that the second meeting between the two
presidents was more productive than the first one which was for
familiarization purposes.

The second meeting was more productive because the presidents could
talk about a settlement of the conflict. Oskanyan said that the
presidents themselves were positive about the meeting and noted their
intention to continue to hold meetings.

Vardan Oskanyan also said that the Armenian and Azerbaijani foreign
ministers will have their next meeting in Strasbourg on 12-13 May. We
shall continue with the talks which started in Prague.

Vardan Oskanyan said that the recent meeting between the presidents
and their instructions to the foreign ministers will give a new
impetus to the process.
