Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 9 / Trend E.Tariverdiyeva /
The Azerbaijani delegation resumed its participation in the XXI Economic Forum in Krynica Zdroj, Deputy Dean of the History Department at Moscow State University, Chief Editor of Vestnik Kavkaza and Trend Expert Council member Alexei Vlasov said.
The organizers persuaded the Azerbaijani delegation to return after the materials dissatisfying the Azerbaijani speakers were removed. However, the course of the panel continued in a very tense atmosphere.
The Azerbaijani delegation has left the South Caucasus Panel at the XXI Economic Forum in Krynica Zdroj , Poland.
The Azerbaijani delegation left the event as a protest to the stand of photos and materials , where the Azerbaijani territory was shown as the Armenian lands, placed before a moderator.
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.
