Chairman of Azerbaijani Community of Nagorno-Karabakh: Azerbaijani Community Completes Organization Process
Azerbaijan, Baku / Тrend corr I. Alizadeh / The Azerbaijani Community of Nagorno-Karabakh completed the organization process, the Chairman of the Community, Nizami Bahmanov, reported.
He noted that financial problems and headquarter-related problems of the Community would be resolved in the near future. According to Bahmanov, the Community has been provided with all necessary equipment.
"The Azerbaijani Community of Nagorno-Karabakh public association is an organization with international status. The purpose of the association is to foster further negotiations," he added.
The conflict between the two countries of South Caucasus began in 1988 due to territorial claims by Armenia against Azerbaijan. Armenia occupies 20% of the Azerbaijani land including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and its seven surrounding Districts. Since 1992, these territories have been under the occupation of the Armenian Forces. In 1994, Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement at which time the active hostilities ended. The Co-Chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group ( Russia, France, and the US) are currently holding peaceful negotiations.
