Armenian FM and mediators discuss future meeting schedule
Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian has today received OSCE Minsk Group co-chairmen - Robert Bradtke, Igor Popov, and Jacques Faure, as well as a personal representative of OSCE Chairman-in-Office Andrzej Kasprzyk in Yerevan, Mediamax reported.
The mediators informed the minister about the results of the meetings held in Baku and Khankendi. The sides also touched upon the schedule of planned future meetings.
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.
