Russia actively participates in resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Russian Foreign Ministry's Spokesman Andrei Nesterenko was quoted as saying by the Russian Vesti television channel.
"The OSCE Minsk Group Co-chairmen and interested sides, including Russia, properly discuss the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict," he said.
He said that the conflict has its own character, thus it has many thin verges.
"The negotiations and consolidations on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict continue on a regular basis," 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. General Assembly's resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh region and the occupied territories.
