Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec.5
Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov and Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian discussed issues surrounding the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict in Kiev, the U.S. co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group James Warlick wrote on his official Twitter page on Dec.5.
The foreign ministers of the two countries have held one-to-one meetings and included OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs in some of them, Warlick wrote.
The meeting of the foreign ministers was held during the gathering of the OSCE Ministerial Council.
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.
