Araghchi arrives in Ankara

Tehran, Oct 31, IRNA – Iran's Special Envoy for Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict Abbas Araghchi arrived in Ankara late on Friday on his regional tour which earlier took him to Azerbaijan Republic, Russia and Armenia.

Araghchi embarked on a regional tour late on Tuesday, which first took him to Baku and then to Moscow, to present Iran's initiative for solving Nagorno-Karabakh crisis peacefully.

The dispute over Nagorno-Karabakh started in 1988 and led to military conflict in 1992. Armenia and Azerbaijan resumed clashes on the border between the two countries in early October, each blaming the other for the violence. Nagorno-Karabakh has been a bone of contention between the two countries over the past decades.

In 1994, following four years of military conflict between the two countries, some European and regional governments stepped in to end the territorial dispute between Baku and Yerevan, and a ceasefire was finally established through the mediation of the Minsk Group, consisting of the US, Russia, and France. But international efforts to resolve the conflict peacefully have failed so far.
