Georgian PM: Karabakh issue will be difficult to resolve in near future

Today Prime Minister of Georgia Bidzina Ivanishvili said in Yerevan that the Karabakh issue will be difficult to resolve in the near future.

As Mediamax reported, he made this statement addressing a joint press conference with his Armenian counterpart Tigran Sargsyan.

"My wish and appeal is resolving the conflict peacefully and using every effort by both countries for this purpose," he said.

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.
