President of PACE Jean-Claude Mignon will meet with the heads of the Armenian and Azerbaijani delegations to discuss the issue on ad hoc committee on Nagorno-Karabakh.

After the meeting the decision will be submitted to PACE bureau, he told reporters on Monday.

“What I can tell you speaking in my personal capacity, not on behalf of the bureau, but personally, I am not in favor of renewing this ad hoc committee because we have the Minsk Group,” he said.

Mignon said he tends to trust the Minsk Group and its work must be more efficient and operational.

“I do not see the point of multiplying structures to deal with the same issue. If you have one structure, it should do its work,” he said.

He believes that creating another structure that will be added to the existing one, will only generate confusion. Meanwhile, he stressed that dealing with sensitive issues, “the last thing we need is confusion. What we need is consistency and effectiveness.”

However, PACE President added that the Bureau may not share his opinion on the issue.
