Cavusoglu said the OSCE Minsk Group has recently intensified its efforts to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
“Turkey has always stood for peace and stability in the South Caucasus,” noted the minister.
He added that Turkey earlier tried to normalize relations with Armenia.
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.
