No incident during OSCE contact line monitoring

The OSCE monitoring held along the line of contact between Azerbaijani and Armenian troops on May 16 in the territory of Khojavend district passed without incidents, the press service of Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry told.

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.
