 MP calls for adoption of draft law on occupied Azerbaijani territories

Azerbaijani MP Gudrat Hasanguliyev has called for the adoption of a draft law on the country’s occupied territories. 

“There is a great need to adopt such a draft law. There are many states whose territories are occupied have already been adopted such laws,” Hasanguliyev said at the parliament’s plenary session on Friday.

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, 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 Nagorno Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
