Azerbaijan, Baku, June 8 /Trend A.Taghiyeva/
Peace will be established in the Caucasus, Turkey is making every effort to liberate the Azerbaijani lands from occupation, Turkish President Abdullah Gul said on Friday, Anadolu agency reported.
Peace will be established in the Caucasus, and all problems will be forgotten after solving the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, he said.
"We are doing our best to establish stability in the Caucasus. Some steps in this direction are known for everybody, some - not" he 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.
