PanARMENIAN.Net - PACE President Jean-Claude Mignon said he’s looking forward to the next meeting between Azerbaijani and Armenian delegations, APA reported.
“As you know, my mandate as PACE President will expire in January next year. I am looking forward to the next meeting between Azerbaijani and Armenian delegations in the near future. But I’m not sure that such a meeting will be held as a part of this session,” PACE President said commenting on a possibility of a meeting between Azerbaijani and Armenian delegations to be held by PACE Subcommittee on the Nagorno Karabakh conflict.
He cited lack of time and tight schedule as the reasons: “I don’t believe that we will have time for the meeting, but I will do my best to organize a meeting between the two countries’ delegations. This issue is a significant part of my mandate as the PACE President and I’m very pleased with such an achievement.”
