Azerbaijani FM: Some issues on Nagorno Karabakh conflict still remain unresolved

Azerbaijan, Baku, June 13 / Trend, M. Aliyev /

After a meeting of the Azerbaijani, Armenian and Russian foreign ministers, some issues on the Nagorno Karabakh conflict still remain unresolved, Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov told journalists.

"There has been progress on a number of issues, but at the same time, some of them remain open," Mammadyarov said.

Mammadyarov didn't clarify which issues he was referring to saying only that it is still too early to disclose them. He said that results of the three-hour talks between the foreign ministers will be disclosed to the presidents.

Foreign Minister of Azerbaijan Elmar Mammadyarov, Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov, and Foreign Minister of Armenia Edvard Nalbandian held a working meeting in Moscow on Saturday.

The discussions managed to bring closer positions on key issues of the Basic Principles of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement. The draft document will be considered at the next trilateral meeting of the Azerbaijani, Russian and Armenian presidents in Kazan in late June.
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 seven 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 Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
