Nagorno-Karabakh: tripartite summit on January 23

The next tripartite summit of presidents of Russia, Azerbaijan and Armenia over the Nagorno-Karabakh will be held January 23 in Sochi, said the Kremlin press service said in a statement on Wednesday.

“The tripartite summit will focus on the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh,” the statement said.

In addition, Dmitri Medvedev will peak in the bilateral meetings with Ilham Aliyev (Azerbaijani President) and Serge Sargsyan (Armenian President).

The Nagorno-Karabakh dates back to February 1988, when the autonomous region populated mainly by Armenians announced its intention to secede from Azerbaijan. A statement that caused the fighting between Armenian and Azerbaijani Baku after which lost control of the region. The cease-fire declared May 12, 1994 is regularly violated by both parties.
