Azerbaijan, Baku, July 27 / Trend, S.Agayeva /

Azerbaijan has expressed a protest to Tanzania, Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry spokesman Elman Abdullayev said.

"The Azerbaijani Embassy in Egypt, also accredited to Tanzania sent a note to this country's Foreign Ministry," Abdullayev said.

According to Abdullayev, the note reflects a protest in connection with indication of Nagorno-Karabakh as a separate country on the website of Tanzanian Foreign Ministry.

"Azerbaijan demanded from Tanzania rapid removal of this information from its Foreign Ministry's website," Abdullayev said.

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.
