London negotiations of the foreign ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan with the co-chairmen of OSCE Minsk group have finished. Opinions on the effectiveness of the negotiations are contradictory. According to the Azeri governmental "525th newspaper", the discussions in the capital of Britain were concentrated on concrete formulas of conflict settlement. Moreover, it is asserted that the parties are about to reach certain agreement. This information could be considered sensational if the sources were sure to be reliable. Nevertheless, there are obvious grounds for optimism.
