11:55 / 09/28/2009
The early-October visit of OSCE MG Co-Chairs to South Caucasus aims
to discuss the updated version of Madrid principles, Azerbaijani MFA
Spokesman Elhan Polukhov said September 28.
"The Co-Chairs are executing order of the U.S., Russian and French
Presidents on elaboration of the Madrid principles updated version. For
this purpose, talks with Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov
are scheduled," Polukhov declared.
According to him, the main efforts are focused on this matter, as
discussions on the updated Madrid document will "enable to determine
further actions of the negotiation process."
"Possibly, only after the new document version is approved, the
issue on Azerbaijani and Armenian Presidents’ meeting in Chisinau
will appear on the agenda," Polukhov concluded.
The OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs — Yury Merzlyakov (Russia), Bernard
Fassier (France), and Robert Bradtke (U.S.) will visit Armenia and
Azerbaijan to arrange the Armenia-Azerbaijan Summit meeting in Chisinau
in the framework of CIS Summit.
