Robert Cekuta: OSCE MG working to move forward negotiations on Karabakh conflict

RobertCecutaThe OSCE Minsk Group’s co-chairs are working and trying to move forward the negotiation process on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict’s settlement, said the US Ambassador to Azerbaijan Robert Cekuta.

He made the remarks speaking to reporters June 1 in Baku.

“We are looking to build on the progress,” said Cekuta.

He added that the co-chairs are trying to continue the negotiation process.

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.

Further speaking about his country’s participation in the 23rd International Caspian Oil & Gas Exhibition and Conference, Cekuta said the US has taken part in the exhibition for over two decades.

“We have been a strong partner of Azerbaijan as it develops at oil and gas sector,” he said.

“We are looking to help Azerbaijan to build its energy future and help make Europe and world more energy secure,” he added.

The opening of the 23rd International Caspian Oil & Gas Exhibition and Conference and the 6th Caspian International Power and Alternative Energy Exhibition was held in Baku June 1.
