Senator: Needs to broadly propagate Karabakh realities in Belgium
Azerbaijan, Baku, May 25 /Trend, T.Hajiyev/
It needs to broadly propagate Karabakh realities in Belgium, former President of the Belgian Senate and Independent Senator
Anne-Marie Lizin said to a meeting with the Chairman of the State Committee for Work with Diaspora of Azerbaijan Nazim Ibrahimov, Committee's press service reported.
Announcing her extremely interest in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Belgian Senator said that it needs to broadly propagate Azerbaijan, especially the Nagorno-Karabakh reality in the society where she lives.
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 seven surrounding districts. Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France, and the United States - 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.
The Chairman of the State Committee in his turn mentioned the prospects for the development of the Azerbaijani diaspora in Belgium, the integration of its representatives into the local community, as well as the need to present to the public in Belgium true and complete information about Azerbaijan and Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
