The Georgian authorities realize how important the maintenance of peace in Nagorno-Karabakh for the region, Georgia's Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili said, "Georgia Online" web site reported.

He expressed hope that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict will be normalized by peaceful way. The PM proposed Azerbaijan and Armenia to hold talks in Georgia.

On the night of April 2, 2016, all the frontier positions of Azerbaijan were subjected to heavy fire from the Armenian side, which used large-caliber weapons, mortars and grenade launchers. The armed clashes resulted in deaths and injuries among the Azerbaijani population. Azerbaijan responded with a counter-attack, which led to liberation of several strategic heights and settlements.

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.
