OSCE committed to peaceful resolution of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict

The OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs, the U.S., Russia, France, share a common view to work together to support the Nagorno-Karabakh peace, the OSCE Minsk Group's U.S. Co-chair, James Warlick wrote on his personal Twitter page.

He noted that the settlement of the conflict is possible.

Warlick noted earlier that he was leaving Washington to meet with the OSCE co-chairs to discuss next steps on Nagorno-Karabakh peace.

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 two countries signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, Russia, France and the U.S. are currently holding peace negotiations.

Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
