U.S. diplomats mull Nagorno-Karabakh conflict

The former and current U.S. co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group have discussed the ways to resolve the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

Carey Cavanaugh and Robert Bradtke, former U.S co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group discussed the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict with James Warlick, the current U.S. co-chairman, Warlick wrote on his Twitter page.

The United States is one of the co-chair countries of the OSCE Minsk Group, which tasked to resolve the long-lasting Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict emerged in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Since a lengthy war in the early 1990s that displaced over one million Azerbaijanis, Armenian armed forces have occupied over 20 percent of Azerbaijan’s internationally recognized territory, including Nagorno-Karabakh and seven adjacent regions.

Peace talks, mediated by Russia, France and the U.S. through the OSCE Minsk Group, are underway on the basis of a peace outline proposed by the Minsk Group co-chairs and dubbed the Madrid Principles. However, the negotiations have been largely fruitless so far despite the efforts of the co-chair countries over 20 years.

Armenia continues the occupation in defiance of four UN Security Council resolutions calling for immediate and unconditional withdrawal.
