No decision on Armenian, Azerbaijani leaders’ meeting: official
No decision has been made on a meeting between the Armenian and Azerbaijani Presidents in the United States, Armenia's Deputy Parliament Speaker said Thursday, March 24.
The official made the remarks while answering to a question about a possible meeting on the sidelines of the Nuclear Security Summit to be held in Washington, Panorama.am reports.
According to Eduard Sharmazanov, Armenia's leader Serzh Sargsyan is scheduled to attend the international summit, with the President's staff set to inform the public in case a meeting is planned.
Also, Sharmazanov slammed Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev's contempt towards the OSCE Minsk Group Co-chairs, urging him against escalating or further destabilizing the situation in the conflict zone.
"This is totally unacceptable," Sharmazanov said. "On the eve of Easter and Novruz, Azerbaijan has been intensifying its military rhetoric. The international community should address such a turn of affairs by all means."
