The Armenian and Azerbaijani foreign ministers are scheduled to meet in France on October 27 to discuss the issue of the breakaway Azerbaijani region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

The announcement was made by the Armenian Foreign Ministry on October 25.

It said the meeting between Armenia's Edward Nalbandian and Azerbaijan's Elmar Mammadyarov will be mediated by the co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group.

Nalbandian and Mammadyarov last met in Paris in June.

Ties between Armenia and Azerbaijan worsened after Azerbaijan's president pardoned a soldier who had been sentenced to life in prison in Hungary for murdering an Armenian soldier.

Armenia and Azerbaijan have been in conflict for more than two decades over Nagorno-Karabakh, which has a majority Armenian population.

A fragile cease-fire has been in place since 1994.
