Armenian FM to meet with OSCE Minsk Group co-chairmen on Jan. 28
Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian will meet with OSCE Minsk Group co-chairmen Igor Popov (Russia), Jacques Faure (France) and Ian Kelly (USA) in Paris on Jan. 28, Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian said today.
He was presenting a report on the Foreign Ministry's activity as of 2012.
Edward Nalbandian said that if necessary, he will also meet with Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov.
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 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.
