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
Group Co-Chairs.

As Armenian News-NEWS.am reported earlier, Armenian president Serzh
Sargsyan will pay a working visit to Sochi on March 5. Within the
framework of his visit, Sargsyan-Aliyev-Medvedev meeting will be on
the initiative of Dmitry Medvedev. Karabakh conflict resolution will
be a focal point during the talks.
