1348902397_davutoglu_230811Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, speaking at the 67th session of the UN General Assembly has once again confirmed his country’s position on the Nagorno-Karabakh issue. “The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict has not been resolved for two decades. We believe that this problem should be to find a solution within the framework of the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan”, – he said.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 per cent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.

Azerbaijan and Armenia 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.
