Aliyev, Pashinian hold meeting in Germany

TEHRAN, Feb. 17 (MNA) – Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev met in Munich on Saturday for talks hosted by Germany’s Chancellor Olaf Scholz.

According to the Armenian website, "Azatutyun,"  neither leader made public statements right after the talks were held on the sidelines of an annual international security conference in the southern German city.

Scholz, who also held separate meetings with Aliyev and Pashinian earlier in the day, tweeted that “both sides agreed to resolve open issues without new violence.” He said he reaffirmed Germany’s and the European Union’s readiness to make more peace efforts.

An Armenian government statement on the trilateral meeting said Aliyev and Pashinian agreed to “continue the work on a peace treaty” between their countries. It announced no other understandings reached by them.

The Azerbaijani news agency APA reported that Scholz left the meeting room about an hour after the start of the negotiations and they continued in a bilateral format. It said Aliyev and Pashinian instructed their foreign ministers, who were also present at the meeting, to “continue negotiations” on the peace treaty and the delimitation of the Armenian-Azerbaijani border. The Armenian side did not immediately state the bilateral discussions.
