Armenia and Azerbaijan leaders to meet over tensions in Nagorno-Karabakh

YEREVAN, March 30 (AFP) – The presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan will discuss the rising tensions in the disputed enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh at a meeting in Warsaw on May 16, Armenian Foreign Minister Vardan Oskanian said Wednesday.

Armenian President Robert Kotcharian and his Azeri counterpart Ilham Aliev will meet on the sidelines of a Council of Europe meeting.

Long-simmering tensions over the disputed enclave of Karabakh in the volatile Caucasus have flared recently, sparking fears that the escalation of hostilities along a ceasefire line between Armenian and Azeri forces could lead to a new war.

Armenia has controlled Karabakh and seven surrounding regions which make up 14 percent of Azerbaijan’s internationally recognized territory since the two former Soviet republics ended large-scale hostilities with a ceasefire in 1994.
