Azerbaijan, Baku, July 27 /Trend, T.Hajiyev/
International laws related to the resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict are in favor of Azerbaijan, the political adviser of the German embassy in Azerbaijan,
Florian Peter, said at an event held under the title "Peace or victory: a look at the conflict", organized with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany and the Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations of Germany on July 27.
"Deep-rooted stereotypes that exist in Azerbaijani and Armenian societies hinder the search of an effective solution to the Karabakh problem. Compromise is inevitable in resolving this conflict," said Peter.
Chief adviser at the OSCE Baku Office
Marco Kubni said in his speech that firstly there must be a political will for the settlement of the Karabakh conflict.
OSCE holds numerous discussions related to the activities of the Minsk Group. Even if the best mediators are selected for the settlement, but the parties do not have a political will for compromise, it would be impossible to achieve a result," said Kubni.
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. Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh region and the occupied territories.
