Baku. Tamara Grigorieva-APA. "Ten days ago I met with the members
of Azerbaijan's Parliament at the meeting of the Council of Europe
Committee in Paris and discussed with them details of my mission to
Baku and Nakhchivan", Edward O'Hara, British MP and PACE Culture,
Education and Science Committee Rapporteur on the studying of cultural
heritage in the South Caucasus told APA exclusively.

He said his proposals caused interest at the meeting. "I didn't feel
their intention for special cooperation. Azerbaijani side expressed
its position with the upcoming presidential elections. There is
enough time until the elections and we can visit the region in this
period". The British parliamentarian said he believed in realization of
his visit. "We are still learning the working schedules and negotiating
the issue. I hope we can realize the visit later in June and early
in July". Edward O'Hara expressed opinion on the visit to Nagorno
Karabakh. "Of course, we are planning to visit Nagorno Karabakh region,
but it is not an easy visit, because the situation in Nagorno Karabakh
is very dangerous".
