Trend:

Baku has agreed with the proposal to hold a meeting of Azerbaijani and Armenian foreign ministers in Vienna, Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hikmat Hajiyev told Trend Nov.16.

He said that during a meeting of Azerbaijan’s Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov with OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs in Moscow, it was proposed to hold a meeting of Azerbaijani and Armenian foreign ministers as part of the 24th OSCE Ministerial Council in Vienna on Dec.7-8.

It was proposed to hold the meeting with participation of OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs, 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.
