Mammadyarov meets OSCE Minsk Group Co-chairs on settlement of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict
Baku, Azerbaijan, Sept. 22
Elmar Mammadyarov, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan, having meeting with OSCE Minsk Group Co-chairs on sidelines of 72 session of UNGA on settlement of Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry’s Spokesman Hikmat Hajiyev said on Twitter.
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.
