Armenia reaffirms that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict can only be resolved through peaceful means within the framework of the OSCE Minsk Group, according to Armenpress.

Armenia and Azerbaijan have been locked in an armed conflict since September 27 over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region, which has lead to the deaths of hundreds of people.

The disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh is an ethnic Armenian enclave in Azerbaijan, home to about 150,000 people, which broke from Baku's control in a war in the 1990s that killed some 30,000 people.
