Azerbaijan, Baku, March 26 / Trend A.Huseynbala /
Karabakh Liberation Organization held Karabakh forum in Imishli region of Azerbaijan March 26.
The meeting, held under the motto "Be ready for battle!," was attended by KLO executives, representatives of organization departments in Imishli, as well as other organizations' local public and political structures, intellectuals, internally displaced people, veterans of the Karabakh war.
The document, adopted upon the conclusion of the forum, noted the need to suspend the negotiations on the Karabakh settlement in the framework of OSCE Minsk Group. The meeting participants condemned the pressure exerted by the
U.S. and other countries on Turkey on the so-called "Armenian genocide."
Turkey and Azerbaijan should work together without sacrificing their own interests, to withstand the pressures," was stated in the document.
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 region and the occupied territories.
