In meetings in Washington, the OSCE Minsk Group Co-chairs heard from the US that we are committed to working with Russia and France on Nagorno-Karabakh peace and a settlement, US co-chairman James Warlick tweeted July 7.
The Co-Chairs held meetings at the US Defense Ministry and the National Security Council to discuss Nagorno-Karabakh peaceful settlement.
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 two countries signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, Russia, France and the US are currently holding peace negotiations. Armenia has not yet implemented the UN Security Council’s four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
