YEREVAN (Combined Sources)–A tripartite meeting will be held with the foreign ministers of Armenia–Turkey–and Azerbaijan on the sidelines of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly on September 17 to discuss ways of settling the Mountainous Karabagh conflict and Turkey`s possible contribution to those efforts.
Azeri foreign minister Elmar Mamedyarov said in a statement prior to the meeting that issues between Azerbaijan and Armenia–particularly the Karabagh conflict–will be raised during the talks.
Turkey`s possible contribution to the settlement of the conflict would also be taken up at the trilateral summit–Mamedyarov said–but he did not elaborate. Turkish officials declined to give details of the planned meeting’s agenda.
The foreign ministers of the three countries had earlier agreed to meet once again to discuss the issue at a previous foreign ministerial meeting held during a NATO summit at the end of June in Istanbul.
