of a great peace treaty"

Baku. Rufet Ahmadzadeh - APA. "In general, every meeting at the level
of presidents is positive. This kind of meetings helps understand the
opposite side's approach aimed at advancing the process of settling
the conflict. The Paris meeting focused on underdeveloped issues,
holding the talks in several stages throughout the day. President Ilham
Aliyev once again voiced Azerbaijan's principal position, noting that
what is first to be achieved to settle the conflict by peaceful means
is the Armenian Armed Forces' withdrawal from Azerbaijan's occupied
territories", Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov said in
his statement to APA commenting on Armenian Foreign Minister Edward
Nalbandian's statement on the results of the Paris meeting.

The minister said if this demand of Azerbaijan, which is overtly
supported by the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs and set forth by the UN
Security Council's particular resolutions, is fulfilled, it will pave
the way for security in the region, opening borders and communications,
and arranging issues of confidence building measures.

"That is, if there are no Armenian troops in Azerbaijani territories,
snipers won't be needed and military incidents will significantly
decrease. We'll restore peace and help the region develop. As one of
the crucial results of the meeting, I would remark Hollande's call to
Armenia and Azerbaijan as the conflict sides about the importance of
beginning to work on the project of a great peace treaty. Azerbaijan
has always stated it's ready for it".
