Issues related to the Azerbaijani-Karabagh conflict settlement and the latest regional developments were discussed during the meeting.
Bako Sahakyan qualified making hero of the criminal who perfidiously decapitated the Armenian officer, politicization of humanitarian issues, militaristic and terrorist rhetoric carried out by Azerbaijan as unacceptable, adding that it was one of the most serious blows to the negotiation process.
