Russia is ready to provide the necessary assistance for holding a meeting between President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan in its territory. Dmitry Peskov, the spokesman of the Russian President, told this to reporters, according to RIA Novosti.
"Russia, without a doubt, will be ready to provide the necessary assistance for holding such a meeting in its territory," Peskov said, answering the question whether a meeting between Aliyev and Pashinyan could take place in Russia by the end of the year.
Peskov added that if there is any mutual understanding after this meeting, it will be informed.
Aliyev had announced earlier that his meeting with Pashinyan scheduled for December 7 in Brussels will not take place. The Armenian foreign ministry had assured that Yerevan is ready for the meeting of the leaders of the two countries, but in a quadrilateral format: with the participation of French President Emmanuel Macron and European Council President Charles Michel, too.
