Armenian and Azerbaijani presidents meet at nuclear security summit in Hague

YEREVAN, March 27. /ARKA/. Armenian and Azerbaijani president Serzh Sargsyan and Ilham Aliev have had a talk at the nuclear security summit than was taking place in Hague on March 24-25, US Co-Chair of OSCE Minsk Group James Warlick wrote on his Twitter page, as reported by Novosti-Armenia.

Are the presidents really interested in seeking ways to peace in Karabakh? Warlick wrote.

The Karabakh conflict started in 1988 when prevailingly Armenian population of Nagorno-Karabakh declared withdrawal from Azerbaijan. On December 10, 1991, a referendum was held in Nagorno-Karabakh where 99.89% voted for independence from Azerbaijan.

Azerbaijan responded by large-scale military operations that led to loss of control not only over Nagorno-Karabakh itself, but also over seven adjoining areas. About 25-30 thousands people were killed and about a million had to leave their homes during the military operations.

A trilateral cease-fire agreement was signed on May 12, 2004, and has been followed since then.
The ongoing Karabakh peace process started in 1992 under auspices of OSCE Minsk Group co-chaired by the USA, Russia and France. –0—
