Date: May 15-16, 2001

Foreign Minister Vilayat Guliyev received French Ambassador to Azerbaijan Jean-Pierre Guinhut as the parties exchanged views on ways of resolving the Nagorno Karabakh conflict within the OSCE Minsk Group framework. Mentioning that co-chairs of the Group are expected to visit the region on May 18-19, Ambassador Guinhut said a new French co-chair Philip de Souremayne will be among them.

Speaking of the work of the Minsk Group, Minister Guliyev said its work was necessary despite the fair amount of discontent with it on part of the people of Azerbaijan. He voiced hope that Azerbaijan would manage to build constructive relations with the new French co-chair, considering his good knowledge of the subtleties of the political situation in the region.
