/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov
doesn’t rule out that Ilham Aliyev and Serzh Sargsyan may meet before
the October 15 presidential election in Azerbaijan. "The possibility of
a presidential meeting depends on outcomes of ministerial contacts. If
we feel the necessity, everything is possible," Mammadyarov said
after talks with his Armenian counterpart Edward Nalbandian.
"The talks were constructive and useful. We exchanged views on a
number of issues and concluded that the talks should be continued,"
the Azeri Minister said.
The Armenian Minister confirmed that an agreement to continue talks
for the Nagorno Karabakh conflict settlement on the basis of Madrid
proposals was achieved. He informed that the next ministerial meeting
may take place in the framework of the UN General Assembly in New
York in September 2008. "But we may meet even before the UN session,"
Minister Nalbandian remarked, RIA Novosti reports.
