Azerbaijan leader to participate in tripartite meeting on Karabakh


27.10.2010, 10.11

BAKU, October 27 (Itar-Tass) - Ilham Aliyev will participate in a tripartite meeting of the presidents of Azerbaijan, Armenia and Russia in order to promote the Nagorno Karabakh peace process in Astrakhan. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev initiated the meeting, diplomatic sources in Baku said.

The presidents of three countries will meet in this format for the sixth time, three meetings were held this year – January in Sochi, June in St. Petersburg.

Local analysts believe that a forthcoming tripartite meeting should intensify the peace process that slowed down this year against the previous year. Alongside, experts in Baku consider it natural that Russia assumed again a mediating role, because the country has good relations with Azerbaijan and Armenia. Anyway, Azerbaijan was always sure that Russia as the closest neighbor has more opportunities to influence the Nagorno Karabakh peace process.

The negotiations of the three presidents will be based on the so-called Meindorf Declaration, which they signed in Moscow in November 2008. The declaration outlined the main settlement principles. Russia is not ruled out to urge the parties to the conflict to keep in effect the ceasefire treaty on the confrontation line, as the treaty has been violated often recently.

According to diplomatic sources, during a brief visit to Astrakhan Ilham Aliyev will participate in a ceremony to unveil the monument to his late father – Azerbaijani national leader Geidar Aliyev.

The Azerbaijani president is expected to leave Astrakhan for an official visit to Ukraine.

Medvedev to hold Karabakh talks with Aliyev, Sarksyan

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev will host the presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan today at a trilateral meeting in the Russian city of Astrakhan for talks focused on the prospects of reaching a settlement on the Nagorno-Karabakh dispute, a territorial dispute between Baku and Yerevan.

According to a statement by Moscow, the trilateral meeting between Medvedev, Armenia’s Serzh Sarksyan and Azerbaijan’s Ilham Aliyev will take place at the initiative of the Russian president. Along with France and the United States, Russia is one of the three co-chairs of the Minsk Group of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), which has striven to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict for more than 17 years.

In January of this year, Medvedev played host to the two leaders during talks on the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement. The January meeting at the Krasnaya Polyana ski resort near Sochi was the fifth between Sarksyan and Aliyev to be hosted by the Russian leader. After the first one in November 2008, Moscow, Yerevan and Baku signed a joint declaration that reiterated support and approval for the peace efforts conducted as part of the OSCE Minsk Group process and called for abstaining from the use of force in settling the protracted Nagorno-Karabakh process.

Ankara closely follows such tripartite meetings, as any positive sign which may come from the meetings will be welcomed in the Turkish capital, which hopes that concrete progress in the Nagorno-Karabakh dispute between Armenia and Azerbaijan will enable Turkey to pass a so-called threshold in order to move ahead in its ongoing efforts to normalize ties with its estranged neighbor Armenia.

Medvedev receives Sargsian and Aliyev in Astrakhan


Oct 27, 2010 09:38 Moscow Time

The Russian leader Dmitry Medvedev is receiving his Armenian and Azerbaijani counterparts Serge Sargsian and Ilham Aliyev for talks in the city of Astrakhan, in the Volga River delta today.

The three are due to focus on a settlement in Nagorno-Karabakh.

The conflict, the most devastating one in terms of consequences in the CIS, flared up in February 1988, when the Nagorno-Karabakh autonomous region said it was going to withdraw from Azerbaijan and join Armenia, and later proclaimed independence.

This provoked an open armed standoff in the region in the middle of the 1990s. The parties to the conflict lost up to 25,000 in killed.

Russia has been a main mediator in a conflict settlement.

Moscow suggested setting up a Minsk Group of 12 countries that oversee the ongoing negotiating process.
