Azerbaijani, Tunisian FMs meet in Riyadh
Baku, May 13 (AZERTAC). Azerbaijani Minister of Foreign Affairs Elmar Mammadyarov has today met his Tunisian counterpart Munji Hamdi in Riyadh.
They discussed the ways of expanding the bilateral ties in political, economic, trade and tourism fields. The two noted the importance of increasing the number of reciprocal visits and creating a consulting mechanism between the two countries’ ministries of foreign affairs.
Mammadyarov informed the Tunisian counterpart of the ongoing negotiations to solve the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. He said the withdrawal of the Armenian armed forces from Azerbaijan’s occupied lands was the most crucial condition for the dispute`s settlement.
Noting the UN Security Council resolutions, which demand unconditional withdrawal of the Armenian military from Azerbaijan’s lands, Mammadyarov expressed regret over the fact that “Armenia has disregarded these documents so far”.
The FM noted that resettlement of the Syrian Armenians in the occupied lands of Azerbaijan along with other illegal activities violating the Geneva Convention was what “has impeded the settlement of the conflict”.
They also discussed regional issues and the situation in North Africa.
