Azerbaijan Not to Participate in Meeting of CIS Prosecutor-Generals in Yerevan
Azerbaijan, Baku / Тrend corr S. Aghayeva / Azerbaijan will not attend the forthcoming meeting of the CIS Prosecutor-Generals Co-ordinating Council to take place in Yerevan, Armenia on 9 October.
Up to now the Azerbaijan Prosecutor General's Office has not participated in any meeting held in Armenia and has no intention to do that in future, according to the Prosecutor General's Office.
The conflict between the two countries of South Caucasus began in 1988 due to territorial claims by Armenia against Azerbaijan. Armenia has occupied 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 USA) are currently holding peaceful negotiations.
