The Armenian and Azerbaijani leaders have confirmed the date for their
The Armenian and Azerbaijani leaders have confirmed the date for their next meeting as May 7 in Prague, the French co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group said Monday.

Over the past few days, co-chairs of the Minsk Group have visited Yerevan and Baku and met with the Armenian leader Serzh Sargsyan and Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev.

"Both presidents agreed the date that we have offered on May 7 in Prague," Bernard Fassier was cited by Azerbaijani media as saying at a press conference.

The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Minsk Group was created in 1992 to encourage a peaceful resolution to the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia over Nagorny Karabakh.

Nagorny Karabakh, a region in Azerbaijan with a largely Armenian population, declared its independence from Azerbaijan in 1983. The ensuing Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict claimed some 35,000 lives. A ceasefire was signed in 1994. The area technically remains part of Azerbaijan, but has its own de facto government.

Fassier expressed hope that the meeting will be as constructive and effective as when the two sides last met in January 2009 in Zurich.
