YEREVAN, Armenia: The foreign ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan
met in Brussels Tuesday for talks aimed at resolving the long-running
conflict over the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, Armenia’s
Foreign Ministry said.

A ministry statement said talks between Armenian Foreign Minister
Vardan Oskanian and his Azerbaijani counterpart, Elmar Mammadyarov,
took place in a "constructive atmosphere" and said international
mediators planned to travel to the two South Caucasus nations in the
coming weeks to arrange a possible meeting of the two presidents.

There was no comment from Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry on the talks.

Nagorno-Karabakh is a region in Azerbaijan that has been under the
control of Armenian and ethnic-Armenian Karabakh forces since a 1994
cease-fire ended a six-year separatist war that killed about 30,000
people and drove about 1 million from their homes.

The region’s final status remains unresolved, and years of talks
under the auspices of international mediators have brought few
visible results.
