OSCE Minsk Group’s French co-chair arrives in Baku
French Co-Chair of the OSCE Minsk Group Stefan Visconti has arrived in Baku.  

Earlier, the US Co-Chair of the OSCE Minsk Group Andrew Schofer and Personal Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office Andrzej Kasprzyk arrived in Baku.

Russian Co-Chair of the OSCE Minsk Group Igor Popov is also expected to arrive in Baku today.


The diplomats will meet with Azerbaijani officials on Feb. 7 for the talks on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict’s resolution.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.

The 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations. Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
