"Turkey supports the peaceful settlement of the conflicts in the South Caucasus. The settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is important for Turkey", he said.
In 1988, Armenia started to make territorial claims against Azerbaijan. After a while, Armenia started military aggression against Azerbaijani territories. Nagorno-Karabakh and surrounding 7 regions - 20 per cent of the territory of Azerbaijan - were occupied by the Armenian armed forces. Unfortunately, the fact of occupation still continues.
In May 1994, the sides reached a ceasefire deal. From that time on, the peace negotiations are underway under the auspices of the co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France and the United States. Four resolutions adopted by the UN Security Council on the liberation of the occupied Nagorno-Karabakh and surrounding areas have not been implemented by Armenia yet.
