During his visit to Greece on the 29th, U.S. Secretary of state pompeio said that both sides in the conflict in the Naka region must stop violence, cooperate with the co chair of the Minsk group and return to substantive negotiations as soon as possible. On the 27th, a new round of conflict broke out between Armenian and Azerbaijani in the Naka region. Both sides accused the other party of violating the cease-fire agreement and taking the lead in launching military attacks. The Naka region is located in the southwest of Azerbaijan and its residents are mostly Armenian. After the disintegration of the Soviet Union, a war broke out between Azerbaijan and Armenian in order to fight for Naka, and Armenian occupied part of the territory originally belonging to Azerbaijan around Naka. In 1992, the conference on security and cooperation in Europe established a 12 nation Minsk group with Russia, the United States and France as the co chairs. Since then, there has been no progress in the negotiations at different levels within the framework of the Minsk group. In 1994, Azerbaijani and Armenian reached an agreement on a comprehensive cease-fire, but the two countries have been in a state of hostility over the issue of Naka, and armed conflicts between the two sides have occurred from time to time.
