Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 22
Anakhanum Hidayatova - Trend:
The OSCE Minsk Group (OSCE MG) will continue to work on resolving the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the US co-chair of the OSCE MG James Warlick said at a press conference in Baku Oct. 22.
Warlick said the topic of discussions will focus on further work and holding more meetings.
The US co-chair said that the US, Russia and France see eye to eye on the conflict.
"We are looking forward to work together to find a peaceful solution," Warlick said, adding that the co-chairs are committed to work together with the sides of the conflict.
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.
