Armenia continues breaking ceasefire with Azerbaijan



(MENAFN - Trend News Agency ) Baku, Azerbaijan, April 16

Trend:

Over the past 24 hours, Armenia's armed forces have 76 times violated the ceasefire along the line of contact between Azerbaijani and Armenian troops, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said April 16.

Armenians were using large-caliber machine guns and grenade launchers.

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.
