Azerbaijan, Lankaran, May 8 / Trend , P. Aliyeva/
Member of the Greek parliament believes the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict will be solved soon.
"We believe that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict will be resolved within the OSCE Minsk Group," Greece-Azerbaijan inter-parliamentary Working Group Head Konstantinos Tsiaras told to Trend in Lankaran.
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.
A delegation led by Greece-Azerbaijan inter-parliamentary Working Group Head Konstantinos Tsiaras visited Azerbaijan on May 6. The Greek members of parliament met with Speaker of Azerbaijani parliament Ogtay Asadov.
Tsiaras said resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is crucial to the security in the region.
