The Arab world supports a peaceful solution to the Armenia-Azerbaijan
Nagorno-Karabakh conflict on the basis of the principle of Azerbaijan`s
territorial integrity, Egyptian foreign minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit
told Azerbaijani Premier Artur Rasizade.

The Egyptian FM assured Rasizade that the Arab world "would always
stand by Azerbaijan in settlement of the Karabakh conflict".

Aboul Gheit also praised Azerbaijan`s economic progress, saying "it
is a major factor making Azerbaijan much more powerful than Armenia".

Rasizade informed the Egyptian FM of the ongoing peace talks over the
conflict, saying "due to a non-constructive stance of the aggressor
Armenia, the problem has not found its solution for long years".

The prime minister reiterated that the conflict must be settled
on the basis of Azerbaijan`s territorial integrity and norms of
international law.

"However, if Armenia continues stalling on the conflict, Azerbaijan
will be forced to use alternative ways."

The bilateral relations were also discussed during the meeting, and
both Rasizade and Aboul Gheit described them as "rapidly" developing
in particular in the political and economic fields.
