NATO official says Georgia help mediate problems between Azerbaijan and Armenia

Georgia can play a mediating role between Azerbaijan and Armenia on the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Special Representative of NATO Secretary General in the South Caucasus and Central Asia James Appathurai said today.

“Georgia can play a helping role to Armenia and Azerbaijan in their pursuit to solve their problems,” he said at the meeting with the Georgian parliamentary delegation at NATO headquarters in Brussels.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 per cent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.
