Baku. Elbrus Seyfullayev-APA. Milli Majlis Speaker Ogtay Asadov
met on Monday with Special Representative of OSCE Parliamentary
Assembly on Nagorno Karabakh conflict Goran Lenmarker. Press Service
of the Parliament told APA the Speaker noted that OSCE Minsk Group
should increase its efforts toward the settlement of Nagorno Karabakh
conflict. "Support for separatism in different regions of the world and
consistent policy in this field cause double standards and violation
of territorial integrity of the countries".

The Speaker noted that ethnic conflicts and separatism should be
evaluated in time and on site and principles of the international
law should be observed. "Unfortunately we face with other realities
today. Despite all these, Azerbaijan advocates for peaceful solution of
all regional problems, including Nagorno Karabakh within the principle
of territorial integrity and not by use of force. We express regret
over the last developments in the South Caucasus and prove our position
once again".

Lenmarker has especially underlined importance of his meetings in
Azerbaijan. Socio-political situation in the South Caucasus, ways
of solutions to the regional conflicts and other issues of mutual
interest have been discussed at the meeting. Lenmarker has also met
with the head of Azerbaijani delegation to OSCE PA Bahar Muradova.
