The next meeting of the Foreign Ministers of Azerbaijan Elmar Mammadyarov and Armenia Edward Nalbandian will be held in the second half of January 2018, Hikmet Hajiyev Spokesman with Azerbaijani Ministry of Foreign Affairs, told Trend.

During the meeting of the Foreign Ministers of Azerbaijan Elmar Mammadyarov and Armenia Edward Nalbandian in Vienna, intensive and concrete discussions were held on the existing proposals in connection with the settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

"In continuation the intensive and substantive negotiations, an agreement was reached to hold a meeting at the level of foreign ministers in the second half of January 2018," Hajiyev said.

Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov said that the meeting was positive and constructive, Hikmet Hajiyev 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.
