This is an important week for the future of Armenia-Azerbaijan relations. Meetings in Moscow and Brussels will chart a way for future actions not only to resolve outstanding problems, but also hopefully, to build a new era of co-operation.
President Ilham Aliyev of Azerbaijan and Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan of Armenia will meet in Brussels on Wednesday (31 August), together with the President of the European Council, Charles Michel. This will be the third face to face meeting of the three leaders in this format in the last nine months, and there is hope that it can lead to an agreement on tangible next steps for putting Armenia-Azerbaijan relations on a new footing.
A day before, in Moscow the Deputy Prime Ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan will meet, together with their Russian counterpart to discuss border issues and the opening up of transport and communication links.
Reports and analysis about the two meetings will be published throughout the week on KarabakhSpace and on Commonspace.eu.
