By continuing occupation of Azerbaijani lands, Armenia is shamelessly violating international law, said Yalcin Topcu, Turkish presidential aide, Trend reports with reference to the Turkish media.

He noted that Armenia’s ignoring international law is nothing but dishonesty.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.

The 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations. Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
