UNITED NATIONS, April 4. /TASS/. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon plans to pay official visits to Azerbaijan and Armenia in late April, despite the escalation of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, a UN source told TASS on Monday.
According to the source, the escalation in the region "did not affect" the plans of the Secretary-General.
Last week, a UN source told TASS that Ban Ki-moon was going to visit Armenia and Azerbaijan and meet with leaders of the two countries shortly after the signing of the Paris climate deal set for April 22.
However, Stephane Dujarric, the spokesman for the UN Secretary-General, did not confirm the visit.
If Ban Ki-moon goes there, he will obviously meet with the heads of the countries, the spokesman said.
Tensions in Nagorno-Karabakh soared dramatically in the small hours of April 2 along the line of engagement separating the conflict parties and fierce armed clashes began. Either side blamed the other for the breach of truce.
