Azerbaijani, Turkish FMs discuss Nagorno-Karabakh conflict
Azerbaijan, Baku, April 20 / Trend, A.Taghiyeva /
Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov discussed the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict with his Turkish counterpart Ahmet Davutoglu during a meeting within ISAF meeting in Brussels, the Posta newspaper reported.
"At the meeting we discussed the situation in the region and the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. We have common views on many issues. The meeting was successful," Davutoglu told Turkish journalists.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 per cent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven 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.
