NATO is ready to provide assistance in peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said at the NATO Parliamentary Assembly’s Spring Session in Warsaw answering a question by Malahat Ibrahimgizi, a member of the Azerbaijani parliament’s delegation.
He said NATO is aware of the problem Azerbaijan is facing.
The NATO Parliamentary Assembly’s Spring Session took place May 24-28. Azerbaijan was represented by the country’s MPs Malahat Ibrahimgizi and Kamran Bayramov at the session.
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 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations. Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
