An Azerbaijani community was established in Manchester.
The announcement was made an event titled, "An Evening of Azerbaijan," which was organized in Manchester by the Azerbaijani Students and Alumni International Forum (ASAIF) and the European Azerbaijan Society' (TEAS), the ASAIF reported today.
The event was attended by over 100 students from different countries studying in the UK, as well as the teaching staff of universities. The event was dedicated to rich heritage and historical values, music and dance, as well as Azerbaijani cuisine and nature.
Azerbaijani youth provided participants with detailed information about the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and Armenia's aggressive position.
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 and the surrounding regions.
