Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec. 8
Azerbaijan’s Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov discussed the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement with the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs at the 23rd meeting of the OSCE Ministerial Council in Hamburg, Hikmat Hajiyev, spokesman of the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry, told Trend Dec. 8.
It was impossible to organize the 3+2 meeting (three co-chairs of the OSCE MG plus Azerbaijani and Armenian foreign ministers) due to Armenia’s destructive policy and its efforts aimed at avoiding the talks, Hajiyev added.
Earlier, France put forward the initiative to hold such a meeting within the OSCE Ministerial Council in Hamburg. Azerbaijan gave its consent.
