Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 29 / Trend M. Aliyev /
A document on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict may be adopted for the first time at a meeting of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly (NATO PA) in November.
"We hope that a document, stipulating the facts of the occupation of Azerbaijani territories, will be signed following the discussions on Nagorno-Karabakh conflict at a meeting of the NATO PA," MP Malahat Hasanova, Azerbaijani parliamentary representative to the NATO PA, told Trend.
The 56th session of the NATO PA will be held in Warsaw on Nov. 12-16.
Hasanova said that earlier the NATO PA discussed such issues as the relations between the bloc and Russia in resolving the conflicts in the South Caucasus, the ways of resolving the frozen conflicts. But no specific initiatives have been made to adopt any document on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
A 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 UN Security Council resolutions stipulating the liberation of Nagorno-Karabakh and surrounding regions.
