    Nagorno-Karabakh may become an autonomous republic within Azerbaijan, Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov said Tuesday.

    BAKU (Sputnik) — Azerbaijan's Armenian-dominated breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh proclaimed its independence in 1991. After the military conflict ended in 1994, Azerbaijan lost control over the region.

    "If we come to an agreement, in the future Nagorno-Karabakh may become an autonomous republic within Azerbaijan," Mammadyarov said as quoted by the APA news agency.

    The violence in Nagorno-Karabakh flared up on April 2. Baku and Yerevan accused each other of provoking hostilities that led to multiple deaths on each side. The sides agreed to a ceasefire on April 5, but clashes have continued.
