The report of Lord Russell-Johnston about the current state of Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict has been heard at the session. Seidov said that the report included all principally important for Azerbaijani provisions of PACE resolution, including occupation of Azerbaijani territories, ethnic cleansing, refugees' problems and illegal settlement of occupied lands by Armenians.
The report also included the item on the necessity of search for the conflict settlement option on the basis of European models of autonomy. Seidov added that the Armenian side has objected to this item, but it was preserved in the report. Seidov added that Russell-Johnston's report would be presented at the PACE winter session as a separate document or as a common report about the Council of Europe's activities in 2005.
The sub-committee has been set up in line with the PACE resolution on Nagorno Karabakh adopted at PACE winter session in 2005 on the basis of David Atkinson's report.
