The Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe, also known as the Helsinki Commission, today announced the briefing on Nagorno Karabakh, Organization's website reported.

The briefing “Averting all-out war in Nagorno Karabakh: The role of the U.S. and OSCE” will be held on October 18.

The U.S. Helsinki Commission will host two former United States Co-Chairs of the Minsk Group process Ambassador Carey Cavanaugh and Ambassador James Warlick as well as a renowned independent expert on the conflict Magdalena Grono, International Crisis Group’s Europe & Central Asia Program Director.

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.
