Armenian Armed Forces broke the ceasefire regime.

On Sept. 28, the Armenian armed forces opened fire to the Azerbaijani troops from positions near the villages Shihlar and Shuraabad of Agdam, Goradiz and Ashagi Seyidahmadli of Fizuli regions, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry reported today.

The Azerbaijani troops answered their fire.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and 7 surrounding districts.

Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France, and the U.S. - are currently holding the peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
