"I am planning to visit Yerevan and Baku at the beginning of next week. The stopovers are first and foremost to mark the 25th anniversary of diplomatic relations with Armenia and Azerbaijan", Lavrov has said, according to TASS.

Regional and global issues will also be discussed during Lavrov's visits.

"We will talk about regional and worldwide problems".

"Bilateral relations will be high on the agenda, questions concerning regional and global issues, the process of the settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict following the presidential meeting in Geneva on October 16 will be in the limelight too".

The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, earlier said that the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs plan to organize a meeting of the foreign ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan before the end of the year.

The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts. More than 20,000 Azerbaijanis were killed and over 1 million were displaced as a result of the large-scale hostilities.

The 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations.
