Leader of Karabakh Armenians meets Pashinyan to discuss ongoing processes

The leader of the Karabakh Armenians, president of the self-declared Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR), Araik Harutyunyan, on Tuesday (12 October) met the Armenian prime minister Nikol Pashinyan at the government headquarters in Yerevan.

Although such meetings take place often, there was particular media attention regarding the Tuesday meeting since it comes soon after the agreements in prague between the Armenian and Azerbaijani leaders on the next steps of the peace process.

No information about the meeting has been released, but earlier Armenian media reported that Harutyunyan was going to Yerevan with a delegation, including the leadership of the NKR National Assembly to seek clarifications on the ongoing processes. Several thousand people protested in Stepanakert over the weekend urging the government to reject Azerbaijani control over the territory.
