Border demarcation commissions to meet next month

The Armenian and Azerbaijani border delimitation and border security commissions are due to meet next month in Russia.

On Monday, (18 July), the office of the Armenian deputy prime minister, Mher Grigoryan, announced that the second meeting of the commissions would take place in August, with the exact date to be disclosed at a later time. It added that the meeting would be held in Moscow.

The commissions were formed following talks earlier in the year mediated by the president of the European Council, Charles Michel, with the first meeting taking place on 24 May at the joint Armenian-Azerbaijani border. It is expected that after talks in Moscow, a third round of meetings will be held in Brussels.
