Azerbaijani, Armenian FMs Meet In Paris

Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mamadyarov and his Armenian counterpart, Eduard Nalbandian, are preparing to meet in Paris to continue talks on the so-called frozen conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.

The Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry announced the two foreign ministers will first meet with the French, Russian, and U.S. co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, which is facilitating the talks.

Azerbaijan's Defense Ministry claimed on January 23 that Armenian troops killed an Azerbaijani soldier, the latest in a week of tit-for-tat clashes along the border.

The shooting follows a spate of raids by both sides over the past week that left at least one Nagorno-Karabakh soldier dead.

Armenian separatists seized the mainly Armenian-populated region of Nagorno-Karabakh from Azerbaijan during a war in the 1990s.

Diplomatic efforts to settle the conflict have brought no results.
