President receives OSCE mediators Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev
yesterday received the co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, who are
mediating a settlement to the Karabakh conflict.

The co-chairs – Ambassadors Robert Bradtke of the United States,
Bernard Fassier of France and Yury Merzlyakov of Russia —
were accompanied by the personal representative of the OSCE
chairman-in-office, Ambassador Andrzej Kasprzyk of Poland.

The meeting focused on the current state of talks on a settlement to
the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

No further details of the meeting have been made public, but the
talks probably covered the forthcoming meeting of the Armenian and
Azerbaijani presidents.

That meeting will be mediated by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev
and will take place on 25 January in Sochi.

The Armenian and Azerbaijani presidents met frequently in 2009 to
discuss a settlement to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. Their last
meeting was in Munich on 22 November.
