The press service of the Armenian president said that the diplomats presented to President Sargsyan the results of their meetings in Baku earlier this week.
According to the source, President Sargsyan called the diplomat's attention to the recent statements made in Baku, "noting that they evidence once again that Azerbaijan is still too far from showing readiness to promote the negotiation process on the basis of the proposals made by the Minsk Group Co-Chairs, as well as demonstrate Baku's response to the Co-Chairs' continued calls to prepare societies for peace."
It is understood that the diplomats will also visit Nagorno-Karabakh.
