Aliyev, Sargsyan discuss Upper Karabakh dispute

World Bulletin / News Desk

Azerbaijani and Armenian presidents Ilham Aliyev and Serzh Sargsyan met on Tuesday in Vienna for about two hours to discuss the Upper Karabakh dispute.

The meeting was held behind closed doors and the media was only allowed into a room where the two leaders were photographed in accordance with diplomatic protocol.

The negotiations, mediated by the Minsk Group of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, marked the first time the presidents have met in two years.

The Minsk Group, co-chaired by Russia, France and the United States, has been working – largely fruitlessly – since the early 1990s to resolve the territorial dispute over the Upper Karabakh region that has ensnarled the governments of the two former Soviet nations and soured bilateral relations.
