Baku has commented on the reasons why the planned meeting of the Azerbaijani and Armenian foreign ministers did not take place on the sidelines of the OSCE Ministerial Council in Stockholm.

“A few hours before the meeting scheduled for December 3, the Armenian side resorted to a provocation. Information was disclosed about the illegal visit of Armenian MPs to the territory of Azerbaijan. Thus, the Azerbaijani side didn’t consider it expedient to hold a meeting of the ministers of the two countries in Stockholm in response to this provocation,” the spokesperson for Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry, Leyla Abdullayeva, said on Saturday.
