Bilateral Relations: Armenia, Azerbaijan to hold fresh talks on disputed Nagorny Karabakh region

AFP reports the leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan will hold fresh talks on the disputed Nagorny Karabakh region at a European summit next month, international mediators said on Monday.

The meeting between Armenian President Serzh Sarkisian and Azerbaijani counterpart Ilham Aliyev will take play on May 7 in Prague, said the co-chairs of the Minsk Group of international mediators.

"The two presidents have confirmed they will participate in a meeting in Prague," said Bernard Fassier, the group's French co-chairman, told journalists.

"We hope that this process will create a favourable climate for settling the Karabakh conflict," he said.
