Germany hosts the foreign ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan for peace talks

BERLIN (AP) — Germany is trying to move forward talks on a peace treaty between Armenia and Azerbaijan, welcoming the two countries’ foreign ministers to Berlin. German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock hosted her counterparts on Wednesday at a secluded government villa in the capital’s suburbs. The latest talks followed a meeting between German Chancellor OIaf Scholz and the leaders of the two countries on Feb. 17. Armenia and Azerbaijan have a long history of land disputes, with the most recent border skirmish leaving at least four Armenian soldiers dead earlier in mid-February. Azerbaijan waged a lightning military campaign last year to reclaim the Karabakh region, which Armenian separatists had ruled for three decades.
