The United States, Washington, July 10 / Trend , N.Bogdanova/
Former advisor on national security at the U.S. President Jimmy Carter's administration believes in possibility of creating new realities in the negotiation process on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
"I must say that I believe in the possibility of creating new realities in the negotiation process on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict," Former Adviser in the President Jimmy Carter's administration and Professor of the Johns Hopkins University Zbigniew Brzezinski told Trend on July 10.
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.
"The Moscow meeting of the U.S. and Russian presidents is the fact that they have discussed the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, not only enhanced the international significance of this issue, but also strengthened the parties' faith to the conflict. This kind of talks between Russia and the United States are opening new opportunities for the region," Brzezinski said.
