Armenian and Azeri foreign ministers to meet in Kyiv on Karabakh

YEREVAN, December 3. / ARKA /. Foreign ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan will meet in Kiev on the sidelines of a December 5 gathering of the OSCE Council of Foreign Ministers, armenian foreign minister Edward Nalbandyan said today.

He said after the November 19 meeting in Vienna the presidents instructed their foreign ministers to meet to intensify the Nagorno-Karabakh peace process. According to him, the Armenian side will try to advance the negotiations process.

However, he added that Azerbaijan’s stance is very important. “Our position is that the conflict should be resolved peacefully,” he stressed. He said if Azerbaijan agrees with this position, then the conflicting parties will be able to forge out a mutually acceptable settlement formula. 

During their two-hour talks in Vienna on November 19, the presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan reportedly "agreed to advance negotiations on a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict" and to meet again in the next few months. 

Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan described the talks -- the first between himself and Azerbaijani counterpart Ilham Aliyev since January 2012 -- as "positive" and as heralding "in all likelihood, the start of a new phase of negotiations." -0-
