the problem will be solved solely by peaceful methods. We attach a
great importance to solution of this conflict and discuss all changes
surrounding this issue with the Nagorno-Karabakh leaders," Nalbandian
told a press conference on Wednesday.
"Today I am going to Moscow where on August 1 I will have a meeting
with Azerabaijan’s Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov at the
proposal of the co-chairmen of the OSCE (Organization for Security
and Cooperation in Europe) Minsk Group that mediates the Nagorno-

Azeri foreign ministers in Moscow, the ministers will meet one-on-
one and in a more extended format, Nalbandian said.
