France reaffirms plans to host a summit on Nagorno Karabakh.
The issue was discussed at the meeting between the Foreign Ministers of Russia and France Sergey Lavrov and Jean-Marc Ayrault.
“France reaffirms the willingness to organize a summit featuring the Presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan to help resolve the crisis,” Jean-Marc Ayrault told a joint press conference following the meeting.
Lavrov supported the initiative of arranging a new meeting.
“We are Co-Chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group together with the United States. We have regular contacts with the Presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan,” Lavrov said.
“Last year the French President hosted a meeting with the Presidents of the two countries and some time ago the Russian President invited his Armenian and Azerbaijani counterparts to discuss the ways of settlement of the Karabakh conflict,” Lavrov said.
