Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec. 1
By Seba Aghayeva – Trend:
Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu will pay a working visit to Azerbaijan December 3, a source told Trend Dec. 1.
During the visit, Cavusoglu is expected to hold talks with Azerbaijani officials and discuss the prospects of relations in all spheres, the source said.
Cavusoglu and Azerbaijani officials will also exchange views on the situation in the region, including the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict’s settlement.
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.
