Will Nagorno-Karabakh talks resume?

Armenia is ready to resume negotiations to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, but a preparatory stage is required to do so, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan told reporters at a press briefing on Saturday.
 
"We have expressed political willingness to continue talks on Nagorno-Karabakh in a constructive way, in line with our political obligations and in the context of Armenia’s interests. However, a preparatory stage is required to revive negotiations, especially in the current political situation," he stressed.
 
Pashinyan added that Yerevan "is ready for any scenario on Nagorno-Karabakh."
 
The conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia over Nagorno-Karabakh broke out in February 1988, when the Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Region declared departure from the Azerbaijani Soviet Socialist Republic. During the armed conflict of 1992-1993 Azerbaijan lost control over Nagorno-Karabakh and seven neighboring regions.
 
Talks on the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement have been going on since 1992. Russia, the US and France are co-chairs of the Minsk Group of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) that acts as a mediator in resolving the crisis.
