Azerbaijan, Baku, June 17 / Trend, K. Zarbaliyeva /
The Azerbaijani Government doesn't expect completion of eviction of IDPs from dormitories, who were expelled from their native lands a result of the Armenian aggression against Azerbaijan.
"This process can be started in 2010. Land for construction of new houses for IDPs has already been allocated, and a draft should be prepared within three or four months," chairman of the State Committee for refugees and internally displaced people,
Ali Hasanov said today.
During the eviction process needs of internally displaced persons will be considered," Hasanov said.
"In 2010, the State Oil Fund allocated $ 80 million to improve the living conditions of refugees and IDPs, but this amount may be increased to 100 million," he said.
"As a result of the Armenian aggression, about 1 million Azerbaijanis became refugees and internally displaced persons.
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 seven surrounding districts.
Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France, and the United States - 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 region and the occupied territories.
