A good meeting was held with Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian to discuss the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement as part of the Munich Security Conference, the US Co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group James Warlick wrote in Twitter Feb. 6.
He said that Nalbandian expressed commitment to reducing tensions in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
"We welcome his commitment to reducing tensions," Warlick wrote.
Armenian armed forces have broken the ceasefire with Azerbaijan 86 times in numerous positions in the last 24 hours, Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said on Feb.6.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan.
As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.
The two countries signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, Russia, France and the US are currently holding peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
