Azerbaijan, Baku, Aug. 23 / Trend K.Zarbaliyeva /

Monitoring was held on the contact line between Armenian and Azerbaijani armed forces near the Mireshelli village in Azerbaijani Aghdam region on Aug. 23, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry told Trend on Thursday.

The monitoring was held on the Azerbaijani side by the OSCE Chairman-in-Office Personal Representative Andrzej Kasprzyk's field assistant Antal Herdich and Office coordinator Peter Kee.

The monitoring was held on the opposite side, which the international community recognizes as Azerbaijani territory, by OSCE Chairman-in-Office Personal Representative Andrzej Kasprzyk's field assistant Jiri Aberle and personal assistant William Pryor.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 per cent 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 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.
