Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Thursday that Moscow will continue to contribute to the search for mutually acceptable solutions to theNagorno-Karabakh conflict.  

“As a co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group, Russia will continue contributing to the search for mutually acceptable solutions to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict in accordance with the principled repeatedly approved by the presidents of Russia, France and the United States,” Lavrov said at the OSCE Ministerial Conference in Vienna, APA reported.  

The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict entered its modern phase when the Armenian SRR made territorial claims against the Azerbaijani SSR in 1988.

A fierce war broke out between Azerbaijan and Armenia over the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan. As a result of the war, Armenian armed forces occupied some 20 percent of Azerbaijani territory which includes Nagorno-Karabakh and seven adjacent districts (Lachin, KalbajarAghdamFuzuliJabrayilGubadli and Zangilan), and over a million Azerbaijanis became refugees and internally displaced people.
