The minister noted that a meeting recently took place in the city of Yevlakh between the representative of the Azerbaijani Government and the representative of Armenian residents, adding that steps are being taken by Azerbaijan in accordance with the results of this meeting, and the humanitarian aid to meet the needs of the residents is being provided.
