"I wish to congratulate Presidents Aliyev and Sarksyan, and President Medvedev, who facilitated the meeting, on their commitment to finding a peaceful solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. The start of this dialogue, which will be followed by intensified diplomatic efforts and the promotion of a series of confidence-building measures, is a window of hope for the entire region," said the President.
"As I pointed out during my visits to Baku and Yerevan last July, our Assembly has worked relentlessly over the past 15 years to bring about a political solution to the conflict in compliance with international standards and principles and the commitments which the two states made upon joining the Council of Europe. Such a solution is now closer than ever," he added.
"The Parliamentary Assembly stands ready to help the Parliaments of Armenia and Azerbaijan in all their efforts so that the process just started proves successful," he concluded.
