Azerbaijan, Baku, June 16 / Trend, M.Aliyev /
Peru doesn't recognize "parliamentary elections" in Nagorno-Karabakh and supports Azerbaijan's territorial integrity.
The Permanent Mission of Peru to the United Nations sent a letter to the Azerbaijani representation in this Organization. In its letter the Mission expresses position regarding the "parliamentary elections" held May 23 in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan, the Azerbaijani Foreign said in its statement.
"Peru supports the principle of state sovereignty, territorial integrity and inviolability of internationally recognized borders and the inadmissibility of the occupation of territories by force, supports resolving the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict through peaceful negotiations, as well as supports the efforts of the UN, OSCE, the Minsk Group" the letter says.
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.
