In the near future the OSCE Minsk Group on the Nagorno Karabakh conflict will visit Geneva to discuss the format of negotiations with the OSCE Chairman- Minister for Foreign Affairs, Didier Burkhalter, contact.az reported.
The meting of the presidents of Azerbaijan and Armenia may be held not earlier than in February, and everything will depend on the willingness of the agenda of negotiations, the source said. Chairman Burkhalter extended the mandate of Andrzej Kasprzyk as personal representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office in the Karabakh conflict zone immediately after taking office, which means that preparations for further negotiations are a success. This is the 17th appointment of Kasprzyk who has rich experience in mediating the conflict and preventing military actions on the line of contact of the Armenian and Azerbaijani armed forces.
