Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili regrets the current state of relations between Azerbaijan and Armenia. Ivanishvili made this statement at a press conference on Wednesday.
“I was in Azerbaijan and Armenia and met with top officials in an attempt to mediate, but there are great problems,” he added.
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.
