Azerbaijan, Baku, August 4 /Trend, S.Agayeva/
Aniland GmbH Company no longer sells Armenian cognac with the label, which indicates Nagorno-Karabakh as part of Armenia, said in the response letter from the company's management to the appeal of the honorary consulate of Azerbaijan in Stuttgart.
After the media outlets reported that in sale in the German city of Heilbronn there is Armenian cognac with the label, which indicates Nagorno-Karabakh as part of Armenia, the Azerbaijani Embassy in Germany conducted an investigation, and the honorary consulate of Azerbaijan in Stuttgart sent a letter to company, which sells this cognac, the Foreign Ministry press center said with reference to the embassy.
The management of Aniland GmbH Company in the response letter stated that in no way intends to interfere in the political processes taking place in the Caucasus, and for this reason, already in January of this year required the manufacturer to change the label, indeed, all products received by January 2010 with this label were sent back to Armenia and in the future the company intends to sell cognac with the appropriate label, the company reported.
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 resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh region and the occupied territories.
