Armenian Prime Minister Pashinyan announces talks with Azerbaijani President Aliyev

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan announced that on July 15 he is scheduled to hold talks with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev in Brussels. He stated this at a government meeting, TASS reports.

“I am scheduled to meet in Brussels on July 15 with European Council President Charles Michel and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev. I confirmed my participation,” Pashinyan said.

The Prime Minister of Armenia expressed hope that during the talks the parties will achieve progress on the issue of a peace treaty.

The previous meeting between Pashinyan and Aliyev took place on June 1 in Chisinau. It discussed the delimitation of borders and a peace treaty.

At the end of June, Nikol Pashinyan stated that Armenia and Azerbaijan could probably have avoided a 44-day armed conflict in 2020 if Yerevan had taken a different position in the negotiation process on Nagorno-Karabakh. He also noted that the confrontation between Armenia and Azerbaijan could start again due to several controversial issues in the framework of the negotiations, especially regarding the preservation of the Lachin corridor and border delimitation issues.

Earlier, Armenia announced the lack of understanding between Yerevan and Baku.
