Russia making serious efforts for Karabakh conflict settlement 6 March 2017

Russia is making serious efforts for settlement of the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, said Azerbaijan’s Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov.

Mammadyarov made the remarks at a press conference held after negotiations with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov in Moscow.

He noted that everything depends not only on Azerbaijan or on mediators, but also on Armenia, which has to start moving towards a solution.

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.

Mammadyarov also said more than 200 bilateral documents have been signed between Russia and Azerbaijan over the past 25 years.

“It is important that Russia and Azerbaijan cooperate not only on the state level, but also on the regional level,” added the minister.
