Armenian Foreign Ministry: Armenia is not going to break off negotiations over Karabakh problem
Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept 4 /Trend E.Tariverdiyeva/
Commenting on the possible termination of negotiations on the Karabakh issue with Azerbaijan by Armenia, Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandyan said that Yerevan has no such intentions, Panorama.am reports.
Nalbandyan mentioned the matter on Tuesday at a joint press conference with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, International Trade and Worship of Argentina Hector Timerman, who is in Yerevan on an official visit.
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 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.
