Russian President Vladimir Putin has invited Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev to hold a meeting in Russia, RIA Novosti reports.
“I am pleased to invite both the leader of Azerbaijan and the Prime Minister of Armenia. You can agree on a date, and as far as I understand it, there is interest to meet in Russia,” he said at a CIS summit in Astana, Kazakhstan on Friday, October 14.
