Azerbaijan, Baku, March 6 / Trend /

Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov has discussed the current situation in the negotiations to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict today and its prospects with the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairmen in Baku, the Foreign Ministry said.

The co-chairmen are on a visit to the region. Earlier, they have held the talks in Armenia.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 per cent 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 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.
