Azerbaijan, Baku, September 30 / Trend K. Zarbaliyeva /
A lyceum school in Bilasuvar region is named on behalf of Azerbaijani National Hero Mubariz Ibrahimov upon the Cabinet of Ministers' decree, the official website of the government said.
Azerbaijani Armed Forces ensign Mubariz Ibrahimov was killed on June 19 during an armed incident against the Armenian armed forces in the direction of the village Chayli in Ter region (in the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh). During the clashes the Armenian side has suffered losses. He was awarded with the title of Azerbaijani National Hero upon the presidential decree.
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 U.S. - are currently holding negotiations to resolve the dispute.
Armenia has failed to implement U.N. Security Council resolutions stipulating the liberation of Nagorno-Karabakh and surrounding regions.
