Azerbaijan suggests immediately moving to the preparation of a peace
agreement without signing a framework agreement, an Azerbaijani
political analyst has said.

Speaking to the Azerbaijani news website SalamNews, Mubariz Ahmedoglu,
who is also the head of the Centre for Political Innovations and
Technologies, said that initially the negotiations' process was moving
to a big peace agreement.

"Afterwards, the mediators, adopting a pro-Armenian position, divided
the process into three stages. That was clearly seen in the statement
adopted by the leaders of the co-chairing countries in Deauville,"
said he.

"However, Armenia rejected that too as its goal is goal is the
preservation of the status quo rather than the settlement of the
conflict," Ahmedoglu explained.

Commenting on the trilateral meeting in Kazan, he said that the
documents presented to the Armenia and Azerbaijani presidents was
different from the previously discussed versions.

"The changes and the corrections proposed in the documents eliminated
ambiguities," said he.
