Baku, Azerbaijan, Jan.2
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
Double standards with respect to Azerbaijan are unacceptable, a board member of Turkey's ruling Justice and Development Party, Mazhar Bagli told Trend.
He said as always, Turkey will support Azerbaijan's position in the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
Unfortunately, today the international community is indifferent to Azerbaijan's problems related to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, according to Bagli.
He added that the mass murder of Azerbaijanis in Nagorno-Karabakh and other occupied territories is remembered in Turkey.
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 the UN Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
