The Personal Representative of theOSCE Chairman-in-Office is working to agree practical parameters to increase the number of OSCE observers for theNagorno-Karabakh conflict, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a press conference in Vienna on Friday, APA reported.  

Lavrov said that the issue of increasing the number of OSCE observers at the contact line was discussed at the joint meeting in Vienna in May 2016 of the Armenian and Azerbaijani presidents with the foreign ministers of the co-chair countries, and also at the meeting in St. Petersburg in June of both presidents with the participation of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"The agreement was then handed over to the OSCE in principle,” added Russia’s top diplomat.

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