"If Azerbaijani and Armenian presidents meet, there are improvements
in the talks," Nizami Bahmanov, the head of the Azerbaijani community
in Nagorno Karabakh, stated.

He said that to hold talks within Prague process is a positive
tendency. Nizami Bahmanov also took a stance on the visit of the head
of Nagorno Karabakh separatists Arkadi Gukasyan to the US.

"Only Armenians can greet Gukasyan warmly in the US. The US officials
do not recognize Gukasyan and his separatist regime. His meeting with
the US co-chair Matthew Bryza has not been confirmed. But Matthew
Bryza can meet with Gukasyan as the head of Armenian community. The
co-chair meets with me, too. There is nothing unusual in this. It is
absurd that Matthew Bryza did not visit the region because of his
meeting with Gukasyan," he said.

Nizami Bahmanov said that he will visit foreign countries as the head
of Azerbaijani community of Nagorno Karabakh, APA reports.
