PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan will be meeting the co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group in Geneva on Friday, October 30, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Anna Naghdalyan has revealed.

The meeting was supposed to take place on Thursday but was pushed back one day 'due to situational and logistical circumstances', the spokesperson added.

Naghdalyan told a briefing on Thursday evening that the cessation of hostilities is a priority for the Armenian side.

'The priority for us is the establishment of ceasefire and the introduction of verification mechanisms. That's the agenda we are taking to Geneva,' Naghdalyan said.

Currently, the process of the peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is being mediated by the OSCE Minsk Group, which is co-chaired by France, Russia and the United States.

Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and Syrian and Libyan mercenaries deployed by Ankara, started a war against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.
