Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan met in Prague on 6 October 2022 on the margins of the first meeting of the European political community, at the invitation of French President Emmanuel Macron and European Council President Charles Michel.
Armenia and Azerbaijan reaffirmed their commitment to the UN Charter and the 1991 Alma Ata Declaration, in which both sides recognise each other’s territorial integrity and sovereignty. They confirmed that this will be the basis for the work of the border delimitation commissions and that the next meeting of the border commissions will take place in Brussels at the end of October.
Armenia has agreed to facilitate the deployment of an EU civilian mission along the border with Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan has agreed to cooperate with the mission as appropriate. The mission will start in October and will last for a maximum of two months. The aim of the mission is to build confidence and, through its reports, contribute to the work of the border commissions.
