Azerbaijan, Baku, June 22 / Trend K.Zarbaliyeva /

The UN's relevant agencies do not include information about drug production in the occupied Azerbaijani territories in their reports, Azerbaijani Deputy Prime Minister and Head of the State Commission for Combating Drug Addiction and Illicit Drug Trafficking Ali Hasanov said at a conference titled "Fight against drug addiction is duty of each person" in Baku on Wednesday.

"We have repeatedly appealed to these agencies on this matter, but could not achieve the goal," he said.
Hasanov said the UN Vienna Office has recently attempted to monitor this issue, but Armenia did not allow it.

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.
