The upcoming meeting of Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev will be announced by the two sides, Armenia’s foreign minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan told reporters in the Parliament, reports Armenpress.
“We agree on this and then announce. But this moment hasn’t come yet in order to announce. Here the issue between the sides is to respect each other that we announce the meeting dates and place as agreed upon. Currently works are underway on this path”, he said.
Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev had a brief meeting in Dushanbe on September 28, 2018, during which they reached an agreement to reduce tension and prevent incidents in the border.
