Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict resolution

President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev expressed readiness to meet his Armenian counterpart Serzh Sargsyan in the framework of the Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict resolution, US co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group, Ambassador James Warlick said Saturday at a press-conference

BAKU (Sputnik) – According to the US diplomat, Aliyev was committed to the peace process of the Karabakh conflict settlement and expressed his readiness to conduct a meeting with Sargsyan in the framework of this process.

Earlier in the day, Warlick said that the co-chairs would meet with the presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan to continue the discussion, which started in Vienna and Saint-Petersburg, on the details of the settlement. Warlick also expressed his hope that the presidents would hold the meeting as soon as possible, although the exact date or place had not been set yet. Azerbaijan’s Armenian-dominated breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh proclaimed its independence in 1991. After the military conflict ended in 1994, Azerbaijan lost control over the region. Violence erupted in Nagorno-Karabakh on April 2, 2016 and led to multiple casualties. The parties to the conflict signed a Russian-brokered ceasefire on April 5, but mutual accusations have not stopped so far.
