Turkish Sabah newspaper corrects mistake in connection with Nagorno-Karabakh
Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec. 5
By Elchin Mehdiyev - Trend:
The Turkish newspaper Sabah corrected the mistake recently made in one of its articles, which was directed against the independence of Azerbaijan.
The article said that the area of Azerbaijan occupied by Armenians - Nagorno-Karabakh is supposedly an independent country (http://www.sabah.com.tr/dunya/2014/11/09/3-baskenti-11-resmi-dili-ve -5-dilde-ulusal-marsi-var).
In particular, "The Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh" was indicated in the article and this caused great discontent in Azerbaijan.
The newspaper corrected the mistake.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan.
As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.
The two countries signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, Russia, France and the US are currently holding peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
