Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan. 8 / Trend M.Aliyev /
The monopoly of Armenian propaganda was destroyed in Lithuania, the chairman of
Community of Lithuanian Azerbaijanis, Mahir Hamzayev told Trend over the telephone
According to Hamzayev, despite its little number, Azerbaijani diaspora conducts fierce information war against the Armenian diaspora and has achieved significant results to deconstruct stereotypes and myths propagated by Armenia
"We apply modern European propaganda technologies for Lithuanian people to understand us. This is the work with local information agencies and other organizations," Hamzayev said
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.
Four resolutions adopted by UN General Assembly to release the Nagorno-Karabakh region and occupied territories have not been fulfilled up to now.
Community of Lithuanian Azerbaijanis was established in 1988
About 600,000 representatives of national minorities and about 1,000 Azerbaijanis reside in Lithuania. Moreover, roughly 500 Azerbaijanis live there illegally
