Unpacking the Pashinyan-Aliyev meeting in Brussels

During a meeting in Brussels on December 14, the leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan reached a consensus regarding the reopening of railway networks between the two countries. One point of contention remains Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev’s demand that the access route through Armenia’s south to its exclave of Nakhichevan be customs free. Azerbaijan insists that if this is rejected, Armenians will have to pass through Azerbaijani customs to reach Nagorno-Karabakh.
