“The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict should be resolved in compliance with international law, and resolutions of the UN Security Council on this conflict should be fulfilled,” said Foreign Minister of Uruguay Rodolfo Nin Novoa as he met with a delegation led by head of Azerbaijan-Uruguay Interparliamentary Working Group Javanshir Feyziyev in Montevideo.
