Azerbaijan, Baku / corr. Trend S.Ilhamgizi / "Karabakh Liberation Organization (KLO) considers that according to the proposals made by the Co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, only five districts surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh will be released (on very severe conditions), the destiny of the remaining two districts remains uncertain and Nagorno-Karabakh will be lost forever," mentioned by the KLO statement made on 7 May.
The statement says that the key task of the peacekeeping forces that will be placed in the region will be not to allow the governments of Azerbaijan and Armenia to interfere in Nagorno-Karabakh and to ensure free, unchecked activities of occupant regime of fictitious country.
KLO considers that the Government should not participate in implementing deceitful and bloody plan against Azeri people and State and should immediately terminate the negotiations and refuse the mediation of the Minsk Group, which meet the interests of Armenia.
The conflict between the two countries of South Caucasus appeared in 1988 due to the territorial claims of Armenia against Azerbaijan. Armenia has occupied 20% of the Azerbaijani lands including Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven Districts of the country surrounding it. Since 1992 to the present time, these territories have been under the occupation of the Armenian Forces. In 1994, Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a cease-fire agreement at which time the active hostilities ended. The Co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group ( Russia, France and USA) holds peaceful negotiations.
The Karabakh Organization Committee (KLO) was founded in Baku on 28 January 2000 with an objective to conduct public struggle for the liberation of Nagorno-Karabakh from the Armenian occupants. The organization headed by Akif Nagi, the candidate in historical sciences, unites over 10,000 people, including outstanding representatives of intelligentsia, refugees and internally displaced people, youth, former fighters, senior ranking officers in reserve, as well as different social layers of the population.
