German professor: Nagorno-Karabakh conflict must be resolved ASAP
The Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict must be resolved as soon as possible, the head of the Department of Azerbaijani History at the Humboldt University of Berlin, Professor Eva Maria Auch said as she met with Deputy Chairman of the State Committee for Refugees and IDPs Fuad Huseynov in Baku.

Auch hailed the work done by the Azerbaijani Government to solve the problems of refugees and internally displaced persons.

Huseynov, in turn, highlighted root causes of the conflict and the current state of the peace talks, refugee and IDP problem in the country, and the successful state policy towards tackling the problems.

They also exchanged views on a number of other issues of mutual interest, and emphasized the significance of the activities of the Department of Azerbaijani History at the Humboldt University of Berlin.

Books "President's care for refugees and IDPs" and "Khojaly genocide" published by the State Committee for Refugees and IDPs were presented to the guest.

Azerbaijan and Armenia fought a lengthy war that ended with signing of a fragile ceasefire in 1994. Since the war, Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan's territory, including Nagorno-Karabakh and seven surrounding regions. More than 20,000 Azerbaijanis were killed and over 1 million were displaced as a result of the large-scale hostilities.

While the OSCE Minsk Group acted as the only mediator in resolution of the conflict, the occupation of the territory of the sovereign state with its internationally recognized boundaries has been left out of due attention of the international community for years.

Armenia ignores four UN Security Council resolutions on immediate withdrawal from the occupied territory of Azerbaijan, thus keeping tension high in the region.
