Armenia and Azerbaijan held talks in Geneva

Last night, Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan and Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov met in Geneva. This was announced today, October 3, by the press secretary of the Armenian Foreign Ministry Vahan Hunanyan.

Details of the negotiations have not yet been disclosed.

Prior to direct contact between the heads of diplomacy of the two Transcaucasian republics, it was assumed that the meeting in Geneva would start work on a peace treaty between Yerevan and Baku.

Earlier, Mirzoyan held consultations in Switzerland with the European Union Special Representative for the South Caucasus, as well as with the American and French co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group.

At the initiative of the American side, a trilateral meeting of the US Secretary of State was held on September 19 Anthony Blinken, Ararat Mirzoyan and Jeyhun Bayramov. This was the first contact between Yerevan and Baku at a high political level after the recent escalation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border.

On July 16, the first bilateral meeting of the Foreign Ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan in modern history took place in the Georgian capital. Mirzoyan and Bayramov then discussed the work of the commissions on border delimitation and security, unblocking transport communications in the region, and the general normalization of relations between Yerevan and Baku.
