The Azerbaijani and Armenian presidents had "difficult" talks at their
meeting in Prague on 7 May, the Azerbaijani television channel ANS
and news agency APA have reported, quoting unnamed diplomatic sources.

The 2.5-hour meeting between Ilham Aliyev and Serzh Sargsyan was held
"in a quite difficult environment", as Armenia had toughened its
position on the Nagornyy Karabakh conflict following the declaration
of a roadmap to normalise relations with Turkey, the reports said.

"Unfortunately, Armenia did not demonstrate flexibility and toughened
its position considerably," ANS quoted its source as saying.

APA said Armenia had once again demonstrated its "non-constructive"
position.
