Azerbaijan, Baku, 11 April / Trend corr. G.Jabiyev / The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict was discussed during the meeting of the North Cyprus Government with Azerbaijani ruling party.
"Azerbaijan faces double standards during solving the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict," Ali Ahmadov, deputy chairman of the ruling Yeni Azerbaijan party (YAP) and executive secretary, stated during the meeting with Ali Talat, leader of North Cyprus Turks.
The visit of Azerbaijani delegation to the Turkey's Republic of North Cyprus starts on 11 April.
The conflict between the two countries of the South Caucasus began in 1988, due to the Armenian territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Since 1992, the Armenian Armed Forces have occupied 20% of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and its seven neighboring districts. In 1994, Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement which ended the active hostilities. The Co-Chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group ( Russia, France, and the US) are currently holding the peaceful negotiations.
Ahmadov stated that Armenia does not disclaim from its unconstructive positions as international organizations and other countries do not impose pressure on Yerevan.
Talat noted that the Turks in Cyprus, like Azerbaijan, have been facing double standards from international communities for a long period of time.
Mutual meetings have been implemented between Azerbaijan and North Cyprus recently.
The visit will end on 14 April.
