Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 21 / Trend I. Isabalayeva /
The representatives of the Azerbaijani community of Nagorno-Karabakh plan to visit the U.S, chairman of the "Azerbaijani community of Nagorno-Karabakh region" public association Bayram Safarov told media today.
Safarov said that the date of the visit has not been specified. Besides the U.S., members of the community will visit a number of European countries.
The visit aims to disseminate the truth about the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Safarov said.
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.
