Armenia and Azerbaijan will hold a new round of talks in Washington today Sunday in an attempt to normalize their relations, the spokeswoman of the Armenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said yesterday.

Tensions between the two countries are rising again over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region, where Russian peacekeeping forces were deployed in 2020 to end the war, the second between the two countries over the enclave since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. 

From April 30, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Armenia, Ararat Mirzoyan, will be in Washington for a working visit. A new round of talks on the agreement to normalize relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan is scheduled, spokeswoman Ani Badalyan wrote on her official Facebook page.

There was no official confirmation of the meeting from Azerbaijan.

Despite years of attempts, Armenia and Azerbaijan have not concluded a peace agreement, which would settle issues such as border demarcation and the return of prisoners.

Azerbaijan set a new checkpoint last Sunday on the road to Karabakh, the Lachin Corridor, a move Armenia called a flagrant violation of the truce of 2020.
