Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan. 22 / Trend U. Sadikhova /
"We have enough preconditions to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict," adviser to Chairmen of Federation Council in Russia
Gennady Burbulis said.
OSCE mission is a good platform and security for this, Burbulis said.
"My position coincides with the generally accepted position. Most Russians share it. The Nagorno-Karabakh must be solved by preserving the Azerbaijani territorial integrity," Burbulis said while meeting with students of Baku Slavic University today.
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.
Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. General Assembly's resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh region and the occupied territories.
