Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan. 17 / Trend K.Zarbaliyeva /
Twenty one year old Azerbaijani soldier Mammad Azadaliyev was killed as a result of the ceasefire violation by the Armenian armed forces, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry reported.
The Armenian armed forces shot Azadaliyev, who was enlisted from the Sumgait Military Commissariat in October 2010, from their positions outside the Chilaburt village in the Tartar region at 12:30 on Jan. 17.
The enemy was silenced by retaliatory fire.
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 four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
