Armenian Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan will meet with Azerbaijani counterpart Elmar Mammadyarov in Moscow today to discuss the prospects of Nagorno Karabakh settlement.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will also participate in the meeting.
The ministers will be joined by OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs Igor Popov (Russia), Stephane Visconti (France) and Andrew Schofer (USA).
The closed-door consultations will take place in the wake of the talks between Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan held in Vienna.
The conversation between Aliyev and Pashinyan in Austria’s capital was their fourth personal meeting but the first official negotiations. The two leaders earlier met on the sidelines of the CIS summits in Dushanbe and St. Petersburg (in September and December 2018) and at the World Economic Forum in Davos (on January 22).
The President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan met in Vienna on March 29 for the first time under the auspices of the Co-Chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group.
The two leaders underlined the importance of building up an environment conducive to peace and taking further concrete and tangible steps in the negotiation process to find a peaceful solution to the conflict.
They also agreed to develop a number of measures in the humanitarian field.
