Speaker of the Arstakh Republic parliament Ashot Ghulyan met
with former Special Representative of the OSCE Secretary General,
researcher at the Institute of Democracy and Cooperation in Paris, Mr.
Maurice Bonnot, who arrived in the republic to observe the upcoming
parliamentary elections.

"These elections are of keen interest to me. The Institute of Democracy
and Cooperation headed by Dr. Natalia Narochnitskaya is engaged in
monitoring of the post-soviet area suffering from frozen conflicts. I
have already visited Abkhazia, Transdnistria and Georgia as a member
of the OSCE observation mission. I am also planning to pay a visit
to South Ossetia," Mr. Bonnot said.

Mr. Ghulyan said for his part that NKR is interested in presence
of international observers during elections. "Some international
institutions, lacking their own opinion, prefer to listen to
Azerbaijan," he said, the NKR NA press office reported.
