Kazakhstan, Astana, July 29 / Trend/
The "International Law and the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict" book of Ph.D. Namig Aliyev was published in the Hungarian language upon the initiative of the Azerbaijani Embassy in Hungary, the embassy reported.
The Akaprint publishing house of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences published the book.
The book proves the baselessness of Armenians' claims for Nagorno-Karabakh, which is the historical Azerbaijani land, based on existing international legal norms and principles.
Azerbaijani Ambassador to Hungary Vilayat Guliyev wrote a preface to the book, which informs readers about the nature of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and the aggressive policy pursued by Armenia against Azerbaijan.
The book was distributed among members of the Hungarian Foreign Ministry, MPs, teachers and university students and representatives of the media, and presented to all the main libraries in Hungary.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and 7 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 the 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.
