The book "Armenian occupation" was presented in a conference hall of Trend news agency.
Roza Aligyzy, a military journalist, a reserve officer, chairwoman of the society "A soldier's family", is the author of the book about the Armenian occupation of Azerbaijani lands.
The book was published with financial support from the Council of State Support to NGOs under the Azerbaijani President, she said.
The book includes articles and publicistic reports about the Azerbaijani territories under occupation, national heroes. The book presents the memories of refugees and internally displaced people.
The book reflects the history of the Armenian occupation policy, which began in 1905.
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.
