Armenian president to visit Moscow
Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan will on Tuesday start a two-day working visit to Moscow, the presidential press service reported.
On Wednesday, Sargsyan will meet with President Dmitry Medvedev and take part in the fourth congress of the Union of Russian Armenians dedicated to its 10th anniversary, RIA Novosti reported.
The union was set up in 2000 as a Russian public organization and is led by entrepreneur Ara Abramyan, a Unesco goodwill ambassador.
Russia is a mediator in Armenia's conflict with Azerbaijan over the mountainous region of Nagorno-Karabakh.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.
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.
