Baku, Azerbaijan, June 20
Armenian armed forces have 11 times violated the ceasefire with Azerbaijan on the line of contact over the past 24 hours, Azerbaijan's Defense Ministry said in a message June 20.
Armenian armed forces stationed in the Dovegh village of Armenia's Noyemberyan district opened fire at the positions of the Azerbaijani armed forces in the Kemerli village of the Gazakh district.
Azerbaijani positions also underwent fire from the positions located in the Goradiz village of the Fizuli district and Kuropatkino of the Khojavand district.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.
The 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
