Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 15 /Trend, S.Aliyev/

Azerbaijan has no relation to the unmanned aerial vehicle crashed in the Armenian-occupied territories of Nagorno-Karabakh, Azerbaijan's Ministry of Defense said in a statement on Thursday.
Earlier, Armenian media outlets reported on shooting down an Azerbaijani unmanned aerial vehicle.
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.
