Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian has received EU Special Representative for the South Caucasus and the crisis in Georgia Philippe Lefort today, ARKA reported citing the Armenian Foreign Ministry.
"The two sides discussed the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement and stressed the importance of significant work undertaken by the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairmen to find a peaceful solution to the problem," a statement 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 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.
