Azerbaijan, Baku, Dec.14 / Trend /

Brazil stands for resolving the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict based on international norms and principles, as well as resolutions and decisions taken by international organizations.

Brazilian Ambassador to Azerbaijan Paulo Antonio Pereira Pinto made this statement at a meeting with Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov, the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry said.

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.

Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.

The meeting was held after the completion of Pereira's diplomatic mission in Azerbaijan.
