BAKU, Azerbaijan, June 7 (UPI) -- Armenia and Azerbaijan have failed to agree on a new discussion regarding the disputed Nagorno Karabakh region, an official with the Minsk Group said.

The OSCE Minsk Group was trying to get Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan and Azerbaijani President Ilkham Aliyev to meet next week to discuss the Nagorno Karabakh region, which is predominantly populated by Armenians, but is recognized as Azerbaijani territory, ITAR-Tass reported.

An official with the Minsk Group said "a next round scheduled for June 12 in Salzburg will not take place," adding, "it will be possible to speak about a meeting no earlier than at the end of summer -- early in autumn."
