Azerbaijani FM meets with OSCE MG co-chairs

Azerbaijan’s Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov had a meeting with co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group and Personal Representative of OSCE Chair-in-Office Andrzej Kasprzyk, spokesman for the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry Hikmat Hajiyev wrote on Twitter.

The meeting was held in Brussels on July 11.

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.
