Official: No documents to be signed in Armenia-Azerbaijan-EU meeting

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and President of the European Council Charles Michel are not planning to sign any document at their upcoming trilateral meeting in Brussels, Secretary of the Security Council of Armenia Armen Grigoryan has said.

In an interview with Armenpress published on Saturday, May 21, Grigoryan said the agenda of the meeting includes proposals presented by Armenia and Azerbaijan for the normalization of relations or launch of peace talks, which have been revealed and include the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

According to him, the return of captives, the opening of regional communications, delimitation and demarcation of borders, as well as issues relating to the launch of the work of the trilateral commission on border security will also be on the table.

When asked whether the sides are going to sign any documents, the Secretary answered in the negative.

"For example in the issue of opening regional connections a working group co-chaired by deputy prime ministers is active and discussions on agreements reached on the highest level must continue in that format. The same can be said on other issues which are being discussed more in detail in working formats. Therefore, no document is planned to be signed in Brussels. Presumably there will be a press release on the results of the discussions," he added.

The Deputy PMs of Armenia, Russia and Azerbaijan first meet in person on January 30, 2021 in Moscow to discuss new transport communications that would link Armenia, Russia and Azerbaijan. New rail and road routes in the South Caucasus are expected to connect the Azerbaijani Autonomous Republic of Nakhichevan with the rest of the country, for which a road will be built through the territory of Armenia. There will also be road and rail routes through the territory of Azerbaijan to connect Armenia to Russia.
