The Armenian and Russian sides will try to get a statement on peaceful
resolution of the Karabakh conflict from the Azerbaijan President
Ilham Aliyev, Director of Caucasus Institute Alexander Iskandaryan
told a press conference on March 4, commenting on Presidents’ impeding
meeting in Sochi on March 5.
`However, it is unlikely to happen, as I see no reason for Aliyev to
make such a statement,’ he said.
As for the resumption of hostilities, the expert emphasized neither
Armenia nor Nagorno-Karabakh nor Azerbaijan with its belligerence want
to resume a war in the conflict zone.
Referring to the Russian side’s initiative to hold a trilateral
meeting, Iskandaryan stressed Moscow gained approval of the OSCE Minsk
As Armenian News-NEWS.am reported earlier, Armenian president Serzh

the initiative of Dmitry Medvedev. Karabakh conflict resolution will
