Mr Lidington, Minister for Europe, said:

I welcome the meeting held in Vienna on 19 November between President Aliyev of Azerbaijan and President Sargsyan of Armenia. This meeting, facilitated by the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs and the first since January 2012, marks a positive step towards restarting regular and substantive discussions between leaders. We encourage both Presidents to build on the Vienna meeting and work actively towards a peaceful and long lasting solution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
