Both then engaged in a lively discussion with the scholarship holders. Dr. Albert Weiler, member of the Bundestag and president of German-Armenian society, explained the conflict over Nagorny Karabach. The discussion of this conflict and possible solutions was very interesting for the scholarship holders, as Kazakhstan maintains good relations with both parties to the conflict, Armenia and Azerbaijan.
