Nagorno-Karabakh conflict discussed in U.S

Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian has met with the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairmen in New York, Armenian news agency Mediamax reported.

The meeting focused on the negotiation process over Nagorno-Karabakh, the ministry told Mediamax.

The Armenian Foreign Minister also met with U.S Assistant Secretary of State Philip Gordon. They have discussed bilateral relations, the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement and the situation in the peace process.

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.
