VIENNA, November 19,/ITAR-TASS/. The presidents of Azerbaijan and Armenia, Ilkham Aliev and Serzh Sargsyan, agreed to give a new political impetus to Nagorno-Karabakh settlement after talks in the Austrian capital on Tuesday.
“They agreed to meet again soon,” the co-chairmen of the OSCE Minsk Group, that had brokered the consultations, said in a statement on Tuesday.
The Minsk Group of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) comprises Russia, the United States and France.
“The two presidents agreed to give an impetus to further talks in a bid to achieve a peaceful settlement. They authorized their foreign ministers to continue working together with the (Minsk Group) co-chairmen and intensify the peace process on the basis of previous achievements,” the brokers went on to say.
As its next step, the Minsk Group is planning to arrange working meetings of the Azerbaijani and Armenian presidents with foreign ministers on the sidelines of a meeting of the OSCE Council of Foreign Ministers in Kiev on December 5.
Besides, the Minsk Group’s co-chairmen decided to visit Nagorno-Karabakh personally before the end of 2013.
