Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 14 / Trend /
A faction of the Liberal Democratic Party voiced a political statement entitled the "Nagorno-Karabakh conflict" in the Romanian Parliament, a statement released by the Embassy of Azerbaijan in Romania on Thursday said.
This political statement was made in Parliament by the deputy of the faction Lucian Militaru.
In his speech, the MP touched on the history of the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and informed that currently, 20 percent of Azerbaijani territories are under Armenian occupation.
Highlighting the massacre of Azerbaijanis perpetrated on February 25-26, 1992 in the town of Khojaly, Militaru stressed the importance of recognition by the international community of this act as a crime against humanity.
The Romanian MP also noted the need of demanding implementation of four UN Security Council resolutions imposed on Armenia, providing for complete and unconditional withdrawal of Armenian troops from Azerbaijani territories.
According to him, given all of the aforementioned, it is important to recognize and support at the international level territorial integrity, sovereignty and inviolability of the borders of Azerbaijan by member countries of the international community.
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 seven 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 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.
