Weekend Update: Nalbandyan/Mammadyarov meeting dominates news

October 29, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

News related to recognition of Nagorno Karabakh and conflict settlement dominated local weekend news as the Armenian and Azerbaijani foreign ministers met in Paris.

Ministers Edward Nalbandyan and Elmar Mammadyarov met in France’s capital on Saturday for the first time after the scandal sparked by Ramil Safarov’s extradition to Baku last August. The Azerbaijani army officer was sentenced to life imprisonment by a Budapest court after killing an Armenian officer, Gurgen Margaryan, while attending NATO’s Partnership for Peace lessons in Hungary, in 2004. In August he was extradited to Azerbaijan and immediately pardoned, sparking international outrage.

The foreign ministers who held meeting in the presence of the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs expressed the necessity on lowering the tensions between the countries and agreed on resuming talks during the Minsk’s Group’s regional visit in November.
