Armenian, Azeri leaders say ready to meet in Moscow
Moscow, Oct 19 (Prensa Latina) Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev expressed readiness on Monday to meet in Moscow for urgent talks on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
Pashinian said from Yerevan that he was ready to travel to Moscow to meet Aliyev and debate the aforementioned conflict.
The Azerbaijani president also expressed his willingness to dialogue in this city or anywhere else.
'Nagorno-Karabakh conflict must be solved by exclusively peaceful means. And I'm ready to make every effort to achieve such a result, including to travel (to Moscow) meet and talk,' said Pashinian.
Aliyev said, for his part, that Baku is 'prepared for any contacts' with Yerevan. 'We are always ready to meet in Moscow or any other place to end the conflict and reach a settlement,' he told TASS.
Previously, Pashinian considered that 'the red line' in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict was the right to self-determination of that mountainous enclave.
To Aliyev, the red line is that he will in no way allow violation of territorial integrity of Azerbaijan. In addition, he clarified that in no way he will accept Nagorno-Karabakh independence.
