Azerbaijan, Baku, October 20 / Trend A. Huseynbala /
Azerbaijani MPs are planned to visit Nagorno-Karabakh.
"Azerbaijani MPs' visit to Nagorno-Karabakh will be discussed at the meeting of Azerbaijani, Armenian and Russian MPs in Moscow, MP Rovshan Rzayev told media on October 20. He will also participate in this meeting.
The meeting of Azerbaijani and Armenian MPs will be held in Moscow's State Duma on October 22.
The meeting will be held upon the initiative of Azerbaijani ambassador to Russia Polad Bulbuloglu.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan lost all of Nagorno-Karabakh except for Shusha and Khojali in December 1991. In 1992-93, Armenian armed forces occupied Shusha, Khojali and 7 districts surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh. Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France, and the U.S. - are currently holding the peace negotiations.
Rzayev said that realization of the visit will depend on result of the talks.
"The decision concerning a staff of MPs to leave for Nagorno-Karabakh and a date of the visit must be made at the level of the Azerbaijani government," Rzayev said.
