It will be the first meeting by Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan and Azeri President Ilham Aliyev since a dramatic flare-up in violence between Armenian-backed separatists in Nagorno-Karabakh and Azeri forces last month killed dozens of people and pushed relations to a multi-year low.A senior U.S. State Department official said the meeting would seek commitments from both sides to a 1994 ceasefire agreement and to take steps that would rebuild confidence and lead to peace talks.At best, the meeting would launch fresh talks, a second U.S. official said.The State Department official said both presidents had come close to a settlement before and are "not that far apart" on what an accord could look like.
