Russia, Azerbaijan, and Armenia will continue work on organizing further meetings and plan to hold a summit in 2023, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said after talks with his Azerbaijani and Armenian counterparts, Jeyhun Bayramov and Ararat Mirzoyan.
"We will continue strenuous efforts to organize further meetings. There are plans to hold another summit of the Russian, Azerbaijani, and Armenian leaders this year," Lavrov said.
He added that the Russian side suggested a trilateral dialogue between lawmakers be launched.
The top Russian diplomat expressed the hope that today’s discussions will give a positive impetus to the negotiating process in other areas.
"We think the closest thing at this point is reaching an agreement in the trilateral working group co-chaired by the three countries’ deputy prime ministers, who are tasked with settling concrete issues of unblocking transport connections in the region. In this context, prospects will open up for the implementation of promising transport projects, which have a wide outreach," Sergey Lavrov said.
