The recurrent meeting between the Presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan
Robert Kocharyan and Ilham Aliyev will be held November 28 in Minsk,
in the framework of the summit of CIS leaders, Russian Co-Chair of
the OSCE Minsk Group Yuri Merzlyakov told ITAR-TASS.
On behalf of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs, Yuri Merzlyakov called
on the Presidents of the two countries to use the unique opportunity
to agree upon the principles of the Karabakh conflict resolution,
since next year they will have no such opportunity. He stated that
in 2007-2008 elections are expected in both Armenia and Azerbaijan,
which will have a negative impact on the negotiation process.
"Besides, the key political figures, who have been participating
in the talks from the Armenian side, will start dropping out of the
negotiation process," Merzlyakov said without going into detail who
