Work over settlement of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict continues: Russian FM

Work over settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict continues and the parties are discussing issues which have not been approved yet, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and 7 surrounding districts. Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group – Russia, France, and the U.S. – are currently holding the peace negotiations.
