OSCE MG is trying to find permanent peaceful resolution to Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, US ambassador to Azerbaijan Robert Cekuta told journalists in Baku.

"Minsk Group trying to find a way to bring a permanent peaceful resolution to this conflict"-he said.

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 two countries signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, Russia, France and the US are currently holding peace negotiations. Armenia has not yet implemented the UN Security Council's four resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
