Azerbaijani FM, OSCE Secretary General discuss Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement
Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 26 / Trend /
Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov met with Secretary General of the OSCE Lamberto Zannier on the sidelines of the 67th Session of the UN General Assembly, the ministry said.
They discussed Azerbaijan-OSCE cooperation and exchanged views over Minsk Group's activity toward resolving the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
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.
