Malena Mard: No way to settle Karabakh conflİct except through peace talks

 APA. There is no way to settle the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict except through peace talks, Malena Mard, head of the EU Delegation to Azerbaijan, toldAPA on Friday.

 

She noted that the EU welcomes the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs’ efforts to make progress in the peace talks, which will lead to a comprehensive solution to the conflict.  

 

The EU ambassador expressed hope for another meeting of the Azerbaijani and Armenian presidents following the Vienna talks held last month.

 

“It’s very positive that the presidents returned to the negotiating table. I strongly believe there is no way to settle the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict except through peace talks,” Mard said stressing that the EU will surely continue to support the co-chairs’ efforts for a comprehensive peace treaty.

 

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 includesNagorno-Karabakh and seven adjacent districts (Lachin, KalbajarAghdam,FuzuliJabrayilGubadli and Zangilan), and over a million Azerbaijanis became refugees and internally displaced people.

 

The military operations finally came to an end when Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in Bishkek in 1994.

 

Dealing with the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is the OSCEMinsk Group, which was created after the meeting of the OSCE Ministerial Council in Helsinki on 24 March 1992. The Group’s members include Azerbaijan, Armenia, Russia, the United States, France, Italy, Germany, Turkey, Belarus, Finland and Sweden.

 

Besides, the OSCE Minsk Group has a co-chairmanship institution, comprised of Russian, US and French co-chairs, which began operating in 1996.  

 

Resolutions 822, 853, 874 and 884 of the UN Security Council, which were passed in short intervals in 1993, and other resolutions adopted by the UN General Assembly, PACEOSCE, OIC, and other organizations require Armenia to unconditionally withdraw its troops from Nagorno-Karabakh.
