Moscow hosted a meeting of foreign ministers of Azerbaijan Elmar Mammadyarov, Russia Sergei Lavrov and Armenia Edward Nalbaldyan, the head of the press center of the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry Elkhan Polukhov told Trend.
The sides discussed the issue of resolving the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France, and the United States - are currently holding the peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
