Moscow preparing meeting of Azerbaijani, Armenian presidents - media
Russia is trying to organize a meeting between Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and his Armenian counterpart Serzh Sargsyan by the end of this year.
Moscow is the main mediator in this matter, as the attempts of the other OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs failed, Russian newspaper Izvestia cited a source in the Russia's Foreign Ministry.
"The maintenance of dialogue is of fundamental importance. Due to this, a full-scale war did not break out in the region. However, the goals and visions of the sides are still different,” the source in the Russia's Foreign Ministry noted.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov held talks with his Azerbaijani and Armenian counterparts on the sidelines of the OSCE Informal Ministerial Meeting, where a proposal to organize a meeting of the President was made.
