Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 18 / Trend S. Agayeva /
The Hungarian Foreign Ministry does not recommend its citizens to visit Nagorno-Karabakh and surrounding areas occupied by Armenia without the consent of Azerbaijani official bodies. The Hungarian Foreign Ministry posted this statement on the official website of the Ministry, the Azerbaijani Embassy in Budapest said.
The Hungarian Foreign Ministry also urges its citizens not to visit the territory near the contact line between the armed forces of Armenia and Azerbaijan.
Hungary always recognized Nagorno-Karabakh as a part of Azerbaijan at the international level. It stood for a peaceful solution to the conflict. It also supported the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan.
Earlier, the Foreign Ministries of Poland, Germany, France and Spain made similar statements.
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 region
