EU Confirms Armenia-Azerbaijan Summit in Brussels

The European Union has confirmed that European Council President Charles Michel will host fresh talks between Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev on Sunday, May 14.

“The leaders have agreed to convene again on 14 May 2023 in a Brussels trilateral meeting,” a statement released by Michel’s office says.

“Their discussions will also be flanked by a meeting together with President Emmanuel Macron of France and Chancellor Olaf Scholz of Germany, in the margins of the upcoming European Political Community summit in [Moldova’s capital] Chisinau on 1 June 2023.

“The leaders have also agreed to continue to meet trilaterally in Brussels as frequently as necessary to address ongoing developments on the ground and standing agenda items of the Brussels meetings.”

U.S.-mediated talks in Washington focused on an Armenian-Azerbaijani peace treaty last week.
