“[We should] organize that meeting, especially now, when Armenia is going through the process of becoming a Parliamentary Republic,” Hovhannissian said. “First, we will organize a meeting at the level of Foreign Ministers to prepare an agenda, and then we will be preparing a meeting of the Presidents,” he added.

No date has yet been set for the meeting between the Foreign Ministers.
