Azerbaijan, Baku, June 10 / Trend , K.Zarbaliyeva/
Monitoring was held on the contact line between Armenian and Azerbaijani armed forces on June 10 after a mandate by the special envoy of the OSCE chairman.
The monitoring near the Garakhanbayli village of Azerbaijan's Fuzuli region proceeded without incident on Jan. 10, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry reported.
The monitoring was held on the Azerbaijani side by the OSCE Chairman's Personal Representative Imre Palatinus and Vladimir Chountulov.
The monitoring was held on the Armenian side by the OSCE Chairman's field assistants Pieter Ki, Antal Herdich and Irji Aberli.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan lost all of Nagorno-Karabakh except for Shusha and Khojali in December 1991. In 1992-93, Armenian armed forces occupied Shusha, Khojali and 7 districts surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh. Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France, and the U.S. - are currently holding the peace negotiations.
The OSCE regularly holds monitoring on troop's contact line to secure ceasefire.
