YEREVAN, OCTOBER 29, ARMENPRESS: President Robert Kocharian had today
a working meeting with members of the Armenian and Nagorno Karabagh
governments. Kocharian was quoted by his press office as saying that
" relations between the two governments need to be formalized and
coordinated.

According to Kocharian, "some problems must be solved so as to
ensure more coordinated meetings not only between the presidents,
prime ministers, but also between other government members and heads
of departments."

Kocharian also noted that Armenia and Nagorno Karabagh are in the same
economic field, "therefore all reforms carried out in both must be
reconciled and harmonized to avoid controversies." The parties have
agreed to set up a joint team to make cooperation more purposeful
and effective.
