David Babayan: Official Stepanakert attaches special importance to  the meeting of Aliyev-Sargsyan, which started in Geneva

ArmInfo.The official Stepanakert attaches special importance to the meeting of  Aliyev-Sargsyan, which started in Geneva. This was stated in a conversation with the correspondent of ArmInfo by the press secretary of the NKR head David Babayan.

According to him, any meeting aimed at promoting the negotiation  process on the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement is welcome in the NKR, and  even more so at the summit. Babayan noted that at these kinds of  meetings two groups of issues are discussed, in particular, general  ones concerning the philosophy of the settlement of the problem, and  more specific ones. "So, at the summits in Vienna and St. Petersburg,  a whole direction was defined regarding the implementation of  mechanisms of confidence in the conflict zone, I think that these  issues will be surely touched upon at the Aliyev-Sargsyan meeting,"  Babayan said.

To clarify whether the Vienna and St. Petersburg agreements are still  valid, the representative of the NKR head stated that Baku and Aliyev  are constantly torpedoing them and refusing to implement the  agreements reached. "Undoubtedly, we should not expect that Aliyev  and his regime will reconsider their approach so quickly, but this  does not mean that we should stop making efforts in this direction,"  Babayan concluded.

The meeting of the Presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan Serzh  Sargsyan and Ilham Aliyev, initiated by the co-chairs of the OSCE  Minsk Group, has already started in Geneva.

The meeting takes place at the UN office in Switzerland. Armenian and  Azeri Foreign Ministers Edward Nalbandian and Elmar Mammadyarov,  Minsk mediators Igor Popov, Andrew Sheffer, Stefan Visconti and  Personal Representative of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office Andrzej  Kasprzyk are taking part in the meeting.  A tete-a-tete  Aliyev-Sargsyan meeting is also foreseen.
