Azerbaijan, Baku, June 30 / Trend , A. Huseynbala/ Member of Azerbaijani parliament proposes to design special national program on resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
"Given delay in peaceful negotiations, I think role of legislative body must be promoted in resolution of the conflict," member of Azerbaijani parliament and member of Musavat MP Group Nasib Nasibli said at a parliamentary meeting on June 30.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and 7 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 the peace negotiations.
He said Azerbaijan's respective executive body has designed national program entitled Concept of Resolution of the Karabakh Problem and it will be submitted to parliament for discussions soon.
"The state of talks on resolution of the problem must be discussed at the end of each year," MP said.
