/PanARMENIAN.Net/ OSCE Minsk Group Russian Co-chair Yuri Merzlyakov
said today in Yerevan that the meetings of the mediators with the RA
President and Foreign Minister were efficient. Before departing for
Baku Yuri Merzlyakov told reporters in Zvartnots airport that the
Armenian side agreed on the meeting of the Armenian and Azerbaijani
Presidents November 28 within the CIS summit in Minsk. According to
the Russian Co-chair, "we should receive the essential confirmation
from the Azeri President as well, though the Azeri FM has already
made an appropriate statement."

When commenting on the absence of U.S. mediator Matthew Bryza Yuri
Merzlyakov said, "The Co-chairs divided responsibilities and our
American counterpart will meet with Arkady Ghukasian in the U.S. On the
whole the year is coming to an end with an optimistic estimation and
if we manage to maintain the mood of the sides we will meet the year
of 2007 with good outlook. Although elections restrain the negotiation
process in a way we think that the achievement of the current year
will alleviate the election period," reports Mediamax.
