Azerbaijani FM, OSCE MG co-chairs discussing Karabakh conflict

Azerbaijan’s Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov is having a meeting with OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs in Paris, the country’s foreign ministry spokesperson Hikmat Hajiyev wrote on Twitter May 15.

“At the meeting Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict and recent developments in Armenia are being discussed. Azerbaijan stands ready for substantial talks for soonest resolution of the conflict,” wrote Hajiyev.

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.
