Trend:

Turkey and Georgia are committed to the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict’s settlement within Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity, said Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim.

Yildirim made the remarks at a joint press conference with his Georgian counterpart Giorgi Kvirikashvili in Ankara, Georgia Online reported July 20.

The Turkish prime minister expressed his concern in connection with the escalation of situation in the Nagorno-Karabakh region three months ago.

“We expressed our commitment to solving the problem within the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan,” noted Yildirim.

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.
