Int’l mediators discussing various ways of Karabakh conflict settlement

Baku, Azerbaijan, July 12
By Anakhanum Idayatova - Trend:

The international mediators have recently paid more interest in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement, Mikhail Neyzhmakov, head of the Center for International Politics at the Institute of Globalization and Social Movements, told Trend July 12.

Neyzhmakov, who is also the political expert, added that it is early to talk about a noticeable breakthrough.

He stressed that when a major international agreement is prepared, as a rule, the preparation for the agreement can take much time.

"Let’s recall the West-Iran talks on lifting the sanctions which successfully completed after a certain period of time,” he added. “As for the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, various ways of the conflict settlement are being rather discussed."

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 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations. Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
