Russia proposes to organize Azerbaijan-Armenia meeting in December
Co-chairman of the OSCE Minsk Group from Russia Igor Popov, speaking about the results of the co-chairmen's visit to the region, said about possibility to organize a meeting between Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov and Armenian Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan in December.
Popov recalled that the co-chairmen’s visit to the region will end today.
"The day before yesterday we were in Yerevan, where we met with the Armenian foreign minister and the defense minister. A meeting was held with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev on October 17. A meeting is being held with the Azerbaijani community of Nagorno Karabakh," Trend cited him as saying.
"We discussed the situation related to the negotiation process and listened to the parties during the meetings. We also discussed the results of negotiations between the Azerbaijani president and the Armenian prime minister in Ashgabat. We think that the results are not bad," the co-chairman noted.
"We plan to continue to organize the meetings at the level of foreign ministers. They can be arranged as part of international events. The meeting of foreign ministers of the OSCE member-states will be held in December. If the parties want, we can arrange the meeting," he promised.
