VIENNA, May 16 /TASS/. Europe’s security chief Federica Mogherini is meeting the presidents of Azerbaijan and Armenia, Ilham Aliyev and Serzh Sargsyan, to discuss the settlement in Nagorno-Karabakh, a source at one of the delegations told TASS.
"Mogherini is meeting Aliyev and Sargsyan ahead of consultations of the two countries’ presidents with the foreign ministers of countries members of the OSCE Minsk Group [Russia, the United States and France]," the source said.
According to the source, the presidents of Azerbaijan and Armenia are trying to work out the final joint statement through mediation of the foreign ministers of the co-chairmen of the OSCE Minsk Group.
"It should consolidate determination to reach the final statement," the source added.
Aliyev and Sargsyan are expected to meet Sergey Lavrov, John Kerry and Jean-Marc Ayrault on Monday evening. The Azerbaijani and Armenian presidents are meeting each other for the first time after the recent aggravation of the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh, which has been the worst since the mid-1990s.
Today’s round of consultations should strengthen the course towards finding a political settlement to the current problem.
