Azerbaijan, Baku, July 8 / Trend , E.Tariverdiyeva/
Azerbaijani continues to work over the resolution on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement which the country has submitted to the United Nations Organization, Azerbaijani Permanent Representative to UN Agshin Mehdiyev told journalists at the international conference on the 90th anniversary of the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry on July 8.
"Perhaps, a new resolution will be submitted or work will continue over the previous resolution," Mehdiyev said.
In March 2008, the UN General Assembly in the resolution 62/243 called upon the member states and international and regional organizations "to effectively assist in the process of resolving the conflict within its competence". It asked the Secretary General to submit a comprehensive report on the implementation of this resolution to the 63rd session.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and 7 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 the peace negotiations.
