Azerbaijan, Baku, October 28 /Trend/
Foreign Minister of Azerbaijan Elmar Mammadyarov and his Armenian counterpart Edward Nalbandyan held a meeting in Paris (France) dedicated to the peaceful settlement of Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno Karabakh conflict.
The OSCE Minsk Group Robert Bradtke (USA), Jacques Faure (France) and Igor Popov (Russia), as well as special representative of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office Andrzej Kasprzyk attended the meeting, said in the Foreign Ministry of Azerbaijan's press release.
The participants expressed concern over the situation prevailing over the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict, as well as discussed the changing of status quo and the solutions of the current problems during the meeting.
The sides expressed their willingness to continue seeking a peaceful solution to the conflict.
The participants also discussed the co-chairs visit to the region that planned for the second half of November during the meeting.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 per cent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.
Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France and the U.S. - are currently holding peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
