During a meeting with representatives of the Peruvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Lima, Nalbandian briefed on efforts to resolve the Nagorno Karabakh conflict through peaceful means. He also referred to prospects of Armenian-Peruvian relations and presented Armenia’s position of a number of international and regional issues, according to Panorama.am

Meanwhile, Trend news agency said that the OSCE Minsk Group Co-chairs, ambassadors Igor Popov of Russia, James Warlick of the United States and Jacques Fore of France, will next week meet with the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office, Swiss Foreign Minister Didier Burkhalter to discuss the Nagorno Karabakh conflict settlement.

The OSCE MG Co-chairs met with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev on Dec 15 in Baku and with Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan on Dec 16 in Yerevan. They travelled to Nagorno Karabakh on Dec 17.

In Stepanakert, NKR President Bako Sahakyan stressed Artsakh’s full-fledged participation in the negotiations and halt of Azerbaijan’s destructive and aggressive policy as key conditions in the process.

The Co-chairs “encouraged the sides to refrain from further actions that could increase tensions, and to work to maintain an atmosphere conducive to progress at the negotiating table.”
