Azerbaijan, Baku, September 23 /Trend, S. Agayeva/
The Azerbaijani embassy in Canada is checking information about the illegal visit of this county's MP Jim Karygiannis to the breakaway Nagorno Karabakh region, spokesman for the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry Elman Abdullayev said in a briefing on Monday.
"The Foreign Ministry has already given the relevant instructions to the Azerbaijani embassy in Canada," he said.
Information about the visit of a Canadian MP to Azerbaijan's occupied territories was spread by an Armenian Media outlet today.
Earlier, four foreign citizens on a black list of Azerbaijan's Foreign Ministry for their illegal trip to the Azerbaijani territories occupied by Armenia, were excluded from it.
They pointed out in their appeals that they were brought to Azerbaijan's occupied territories by fraud.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 per cent 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.
