Trend:

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Thursday offered Armenia's President Serzh Sargsyan to discuss Russia's proposals on the measures that might be implemented over the shortest possible term, TASS reported.

He spoke about the proposals during talks with Sargsyan.

Medvedev said in response there was no alternative to peaceful talks and discussions as instruments of solution of the Nagorno-Karabakh.

The Foreign Ministers agreed to join efforts as the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs in order to normalize the situation in the conflict area as soon as possible.

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.
