UK envoy talks on Karabakh conflict's resolution



The UK supports international efforts aimed at resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, British Ambassador to Azerbaijan Carole Crofts told Trend Oct.14.

“Benefits of peace not only for Azerbaijan but the whole region would be immense, we would hate to see any further lost of life. We support the efforts of OSCE MG co-chairs, they have been trying for long time to resolve the conflict,” says the ambassador.

Carole Crofts added that “It would be wonderful if we could see further progress, and peace brought to this country.”

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.
