Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov.13 / Trend, K.Zarbaliyeva /
A resident of Alpoud village of the Azerbaijani Gazakh region, Telman Aliyev, born in 1972, went missing in the Azerbaijani-Armenian border losing his way in the fog when he grazed cattle. After the police received information about his missing, investigation has been launched.
Aliyev is deaf and dumb. He lost his way in the fog and crossed the border, Azerbaijani Interior Ministry's deputy spokesman Ehsan Zahidov told Trend.
The incident was recorded on the contact line between Armenian and Azerbaijani troops on Nov.12, Armenia Today reported earlier.
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 the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
