    New proposals are unlikely to sound during Washington's conversations
    on resolution of Armenian-Azeri conflict, Trend reports quoting Azeri
    Foreign Minister Elmar Mamedyarov, who was speaking in Moscow
    commenting the forthcoming official visit of Azeri President to the

    «Positions Azerbaijan was standing on last 15 years remain the same.
    We always stated and keep stating that the problem shall be resolved
    in compliance with international legislation and resolutions issued
    by UN Security Council and OSCE. There is no doubt that if we want to
    resolve the conflict once and for all, the resolution shall be based
    on legislation alone. Arbitrators are trying to find contact points
    to get us closer», - minister said.

    Speaking on «self-determination» of Nagorno-Karabakh population,
    Mamedyarov said it didn't imply any breach of territorial integrity
    of Azerbaijan. «Self-determination of nation or a national minority
    is performed under the territorial integrity, and Azerbaijan, in
    turn, is eager to provide the highest level of autonomy to Armenian
    minority within Nagorno-Karabakh. This practice is well-known and is
    utilized worldwide», - Foreign Minister said.

    Mamedyarov said also of a broad range of issues regarding mutual
    cooperation, as well as international and regional development, to be
    spoken of during the forthcoming visit of Azeri president Ilham
    Aliyev to the USA. The minister said one of the main topics would be
    conflict resolution on Caucasus. During the visit presidents will
    also speak of power security, fight against international terrorism
    and Azerbaijan's participation in anti-terrorist coalition.
