Azerbaijan, Baku, July 18 / Trend /

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discussed ways to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the Star newspaper reported.

Davutoglu and Clinton discussed in detail the situation in the Caucasus, particularly ways to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

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 and the surrounding regions.
