ArmInfo. Today in Yevlakh there was a meeting between representatives of Stepanakert and representatives of Baku. An agreement was reached to hold regular meetings. Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan announced on the evening of September 21 during a Facebook live broadcast.
As the prime minister pointed out, the partners from Nagorno-Karabakh have not yet released official information about the meeting. "Azerbaijan, at least in its official statement, tried to create the impression that processes are proceeding in a positive direction," he said, noting that this may be due to the upcoming UN discussion on the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh (an urgent meeting of UN Security Council is expected today, ed. note).
At the same time, according to the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia, "evacuation should not be "Plan A", and nor even "Plan B", but should be "Plan D". Again, Pashinyan emphasized, Yerevan adheres to the point of view that there is no direct threat to the civilian population of NK, especially under the conditions of a truce.
