Envoy: US committed to work on solving Karabakh conflict



The US is committed to work with Azerbaijan and Armenia in order to help for the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, US Ambassador to Azerbaijan Robert Cekuta told reporters Oct. 21 in Baku.

Ambassador James Warlick’s visit to Azerbaijan, together with other co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, is a part of the ongoing efforts to find a solution to the issue, said Cekuta.

The ambassador positively assessed the current level of the US-Azerbaijan relations.

“There is still work to do, but we made a lot of progress,” he added.

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.
