Pashinyan confirmed his intention to meet with Aliyev in Brussels
Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said that he was not going to refuse a meeting with the head of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev, which is to be held in Brussels on May 14. Nevertheless, he considers the probability of signing a peace treaty on that day low, reports RIA News.
“At the moment, I have not changed my decision to go to Brussels for talks on Sunday […] How likely is it that a peace treaty will be signed with Azerbaijan on the same day? Unfortunately, the probability is very low,” Pashinyan said during a government meeting, which discussed the details of new shelling on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border.
On the morning of Thursday, May 11, the Armenian Ministry of Defense stated that the Azerbaijani servicemen opened artillery fire in the direction of the village of Sotk along the Armenian positions. At the same time, on May 4, Yerevan and Baku made progress on some points of the peace agreement. On a number of key issues, the heads of state still disagree. On May 14, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev are to hold a personal meeting in Brussels.
