Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov. 23 / Trend M. Aliyev /
The Seventh General Assembly of the International Forum of Asian Political Parties (ICAPP) has adopted a declaration.
The assembly supports Azerbaijan's territorial integrity and the UN Security Council's resolution on the Azerbaijani occupied territories, a declaration adopted after the Baku forum said today.
On the situation in the South Caucasus, the organization supports the need to uphold justice, the rule of law and all the UN resolutions on Nagorno Karabakh.
The organization has appreciated the position of the Azerbaijani leadership and the New Azerbaijan party to promote peace, reconciliation and security in the region.
"Azerbaijan's territorial integrity must be inviolable," a declaration said.
Roughly 200 representatives from 35 countries participated in the seventh General Assembly of the International Conference of Asian Political Parties (ICAPP) which started in Baku on Thursday.
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 Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
