Azerbaijan, Baku, July 18 / Trend /
The EU Special Representative for the South Caucasus will discuss the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and the development of cooperation between Azerbaijan and the EU in Baku.
EU Special Representative for the South Caucasus Philippe Lefort's visit to Baku is scheduled for next week, the EU Baku office told Trend today.
Lefort is currently on a visit to Yerevan, where he discussed the conflict's settlement with Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian, the Armenian media reported.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. The 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.
