Following the talks between Ilham Aliyev, Nikol Pashinyan and Charles Michel, an agreement was reached to launch a commission on the delimitation of borders in Nagorno-Karabakh, and the parties also discussed humanitarian and transport issues
The third meeting of Armenian Prime Minister Nikol took place in Brussels Pashinyan, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and President of the European Council Charles Michel on the settlement of the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh, according to Pashinyan's website.
“According to the results of the discussion, agreements were reached on further progress in opening regional communications and launching work Commissions on Demarcation and Border Security»,— said in the message.
The parties also discussed the preparation “for the negotiation process to normalize relations between the two countries” and humanitarian issues. A new trilateral meeting is planned for July or August.

Baku and Yerevan agreed on the establishment of a delimitation commission during the previous tripartite talks in early April. Shortly before this, the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh escalated: in March, the Azerbaijani military occupied the Armenian village of Parukh (Azerb. Farukh) in Karabakh, which is in the zone of responsibility of Russian peacekeepers. They are there under an agreement of 2020, which was concluded after the end of the last military conflict in the region.
At the same time, Azerbaijan proposed a draft peace treaty to Armenia, which was never concluded after the end of the conflict in 2020, and Armenia responded to this document. One of the points of the project is the delimitation and demarcation of borders.
