Armenia-Azerbaijan likely to meet for disputed territories

World Bulletin / News Desk

Armenian Foreign Minister Edvard Nalbanyan said on Monday that Armenian and Azerbaijani presidents were likely to come together to negotiate the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh by the end of 2013.

A conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia  broke out  in 1991 over the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan.

Negotiations have so far failed to produce a permanent peace agreement.

Nalbandyan said Armenia supported  the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Minsk Group, which encourages  peace negotiations  to the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia over Nagorno-Karabakh, and would keep supporting it. 

Referring to the OSCE co-chairs  of the Minsk Group meeting in Vienna on July 13, Nalbadyan said " We have set a date for peace talks in this meeting. A summit may be held and Azerbaijani and Armenian presidents may come together by the end of 2013."

'A conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia broke out in 1991 over the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan' is not right formulated as it actually broke out after independence referendum in Nagorno Karabakh and the fact is that Azerbaijan was the counry which occupied NK and after a long war was defeted.So territorial 'claims' is abusrd

Armenia did not made territorial claims against Azerbaijan but The Autonomous Region of Mountainous Karabagh (Artsakh) declared independence from Azerbaijan because of continued persecution, oppression, and human and civil rights violations by the Azeri Turks. It was attached to Azerbaijan as an Autonomous Region by Joseph Stalin in 1921 and has suffered under Azeri rule from that time onward.
