Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov has met with OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs as part of his working visit to Brussels.

They discussed results of the meeting in Vienna held to prepare for the June summit aimed at finding a soonest possible solution to the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, said Hikmat Hajiyev, spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry.

Commenting on information that a meeting of the Armenian and Azerbaijani Foreign Ministers, allegedly scheduled for June, was cancelled, Hikmat Hajiyev underlined that there were not any proposal or plans to hold such a meeting in general.

Azerbaijan and Armenia for over two decades have been locked in conflict, which emerged over Armenian territorial claims. Since the 1990s war, Armenian armed forces have occupied over 20 percent of Azerbaijan's internationally recognized territory, including Nagorno-Karabakh and seven adjacent regions. The UN Security Council has adopted four resolutions on Armenian withdrawal, but they have not been enforced to this day.

A precarious cease-fire was signed in 1994. However, the Armenian forces commit armistice breaches on the frontline almost every day.
